I checked this trail out today as well. The trail is probably not private - but parking and entry at "gate 5" is. http://www.plpoa.com/News/22408~404096/GATE-5-PARKING-IS-ONLY-OPEN-TO-PAGOSA-LAKES-RESIDENTS. this should probably be removed from all trails. My regards to Pagosa Lakes Residents, giving me a bad impression of the people and area.

Unlike the other reviewer, I did not ever see a sign that the trail was closed. The trail was relatively flat and great for trail running. The only negatives are that it isn’t particularly well marked at portions, it runs along the road, and it’s really more of a piecemeal combination of other trails. Overall, though, great for trail running or for a long but relatively easy hike.

This is a private trail, and there is a nasty sign at the trail head informing you that if you hike this trail, you will be in trouble.
