Review: Simple instructions: Go downhill, keep going downhill and don't stop going downhill. =) Fun trail indeed. I wouldn't consider it advanced because I could ride everything, =) except a couple of deep mudded drainage crossings. It is a steep and narrow trail. Most of the trail is probably 8-15" wide with lots of roots and rocks. None of them are too big, but they keep you on your toes at all times. For much of the upper half, you have to keep your speed in check some and work the obstacles. Then for much of the lower half, starting from the big meadow, you can open it up a lot more. Then over the last mile or so, the trail widens just a bit, and you can really let it rip. On top for about the first mile, the scenery is exceptional. I'll give the trail five stars because the previous reviewer gave it one star which is utterly absurd imo. Yes, there were lots of trees down before, but the local bike community does a lot of work on this trail every year and does an admirable job staying on top of the situation. There were zero trees across the trail yesterday. How can you give a trail a terrible rating for a temporary condition? All in all, I'd consider the trail 4.5 stars. Finally, it may sound strange, but if you add the road climb up FR 725 (3.8 mi and tops out near 11,200'), imo you have a five star ride. The road is a challenging climb and absolutely beautiful -- beautiful views of the San Juans.

Review: Was up there on foot June 2, 2017. The trail is mostly impassable due to 100's of massive burned up trees that have fallen across the trail. The lower portion may be somewhat passable by bike for 3 miles or so.

Review: Does anyone know the damage done to Treasure Mountain Trail due to the West Fork Complex Fire last summer? I've been curious for a while. Maybe I just need to call a LBS in Pagosa.

Review: Sadly, within the currently burning West Fork Fire Complex in the San Juan Mtn, a secondary fire has started on the southern and eastern slopes of Treasure Mountain. It appears it might be consuming much of this beautiful trail. I hope not.

Review: Great downhill when shuttled. Road to trailhead is very rough and remote, if you lack a 4wd you might find yourself riding up the road a bit. Very much worth the effort to get to though, bomber downhill with great views along a beautifully groomed trail.
