Description

This mostly singletrack climbs the flank of Devil Mountain. It is steep and there are a handful of switchbacks, but the cross-slopes are modest and there are few rocky sections. The majority of the ascent to the top is thickly covered in trees, providing shade and limiting views. The trail is lost and overgrown in many places. Additionally, there is a significant amount of moon dust that complicates maintaining momentum.

Note that this is trail 605 on the Pagosa MVUM (Motor Vehicle Use Map)--the only motorized vehicles permitted are motorcycles.

There is abundant parking and camp spots at the trailhead.

Would not recommend. It is a major sufferfest up, for limited reward. It takes a decent amount of time from HWY160 to get to the trailhead too. Many parts are overgrown and there is a significant amount of moondust on the trail that makes maintaining traction on the steep slopes difficult. In mid-June there were a ton of black flies and mosquitoes to keep you company. Jun 10, 2018
