Summit County is a beautiful area for hiking, and a good base location if you like taking the scenic route.
West of Keystone on I-70 is Glenwood Springs with a big hot springs pool, a 1.5 hour drive one way. Before you reach Glenwood Springs, Glenwood Canyon is a beautiful canyon to drive through, right on I-70.
35 miles north of Keystone by the small town of Heeney is Green Mountain Reservoir, which offers recreational water sports. Be sure to view the beautiful canyon northwest of the reservoir, which can be accessed at the end of county road 1812, just south of the dam.
Almost 2 hours north of Keystone is Grand Lake, a large lake with a quaint town for shopping. Grand Lake is the entrance town to Rocky Mountain National Park, a beautiful park abundant with wildlife.
One hour northeast of Keystone is Black Hawk and Central City with their casinos.
The Denver metro area begins one hour east of Keystone. Downtown Denver is 1.4 hours east. We recommend the Denver Art Museum and the Aquarium, as well as the 16th Street Mall.
