Rave Run Keystone, Colorado
Loveland Pass connects the Keystone and Arapahoe Basin ski areas in the Rocky Mountains. Starting in Keystone, the five-mile stretch climbs 1,500 feet to Arapahoe.
Between November and April, the road is busy with ski-season traffic. During that time, your best bet for a quiet run is on weekday afternoons.
In 2016 the city of Denver, less than 70 miles east, was named as the best place to live in the US by the influential US News & World Report.
