Treasure Mountain trail is an experience you won't want to miss. You will come across some Colorado mountain views that you will remember for life! About 6.5 miles of downhill singletrack with approx 3000 ft elevation loss! You can shuttle this ride in a 2wd vehicle and only have to climb for about 4.5 miles (and about 1200 vertical feet) of forest roads to get to the trailhead, or you can shuttle the whole thing in a high clearance 4wd vehicle. To ride the whole loop including the pavement on Wolf Creek Pass is 28.5 miles. The singletrack of Treasure Mountain trail is world class!
To get to the Treasure Mountain trail from South Fork, travel approximately 21 miles west on Hwy 160 (you will summit Wolf Creek Pass and go about 2 miles down the west side) to forest road 725.
Shuttle option 1: From forest road 725 continue another 10 miles west on Hwy 160 (all the way to the bottom of wolf creek pass and across the flat meadow) to East Fork road. Leave a vehicle near this intersection (drive up East Fork rd. until you find a good spot, as your ride will end coming down East Fork rd.) Drive back up Wolf Creek pass and park your second vehicle at the intersection of forest road 725 and hwy 160. There is plenty of parking available here. Begin your ride by heading down forest road 725. At mile 1.8 stay right on 725 while 725C stays straight. Stay left at mile 3.6. Stay left at mile 3.8. The singletrack begins at mile 4.6. Enjoy several miles of the sweetest singletrack in southern Colorado! The singletrack will come out on East Fork road. Turn right and enjoy the 6 miles of downhill forest road back to your vehicle.
Shuttle option 2: If you have a high clearance 4wd vehicle, you can shuttle to the top of the trail. Leave a vehicle at East Fork road as described in shuttle option 1, or if you want to avoid riding the 6 miles of forest road at the end on East Fork road, you can drive up East Fork road to the lower Treasure Mountain trailhead, and park near it.

At mile 1.8 of road 725, continue right on 725 while 725C stays straight. 725 now becomes more primitive and heads up towards treasure mountain. Stay left at mile 3.6.
