Not a bad hike close to town. Some sections in the eastern portion along the creek had swarms of bees, but we just walked through without stopping and didn’t get stung or chased by the insects. Trail is a bit hard to follow the route outlined on the app as the signage changes from Keystone Canyon to Poedunk and another trail name in the northern and western portions, but still a nice route as mapped here! Great views down the canyons from the top. No shade, but nice now this time of year and trail wasn’t very busy feeling even though the parking lot was full.

Really liked it during the week. Probably very busy on weekend. Close to town but no traffic noise. Popular with mountain bikers, no motorized vehicles.

Amazing trail especially around sunset for both MTBing and hiking. Easy to medium level with some smooth inclines and nice downhill slopes. Highly recommended!

CAR WINDOWS SMASHED AND ALL POSSESSIONS STOLEN AT EASTERN TRAILHEAD PARKING LOT. The hike itself was great but this is evidently not a safe place to park your car. Even locking away possessions was not enough to deter theft. I am very disappointed and will not be returning to this trail any time soon.

Went from west side parking up Poedunk trail and came back on Keystone canyon. Nice trail. Very rocky singletrack. Gets hot early. Nice views once you get up aways. Would have been a nice on a bike.

Seems like a primarily bike / trail runner trail, but since no trees there’s good visibility and most didn’t seem to mind sharing it with some hikers. 10/10 for scenery and wildflowers so close to town (15 min drive from the airport for me) Prepare for no shade! Pretty views and scenery.

Beautiful hike with lots of wildflowers. Very rocky at times but altogether a great hike.

Not too many people out & all were friendly - hikers & bikers. Some dogs off leash but not a nuisance. Was my first ride in 5 years & I was thrilled with it. Nice uphill climbing along with great downhill (I do like to go fast)!

easy to follow trails, but need to be redone because some how we ended up on a completely different trail. map said 4.1 miles, ended up going over 5 miles and barely beat the dark. Definitely fun and enjoyed it with my sister an our two babies, I'll be going back.
