There is a sign for treasure trail at the top of the CDT but the upper section is lost to the elements. Basically drop from the CDT and freeride until you reach a flat bench, then head north (right) until you see some cairns. Follow a faint trail down to the road. This is a great way to link CDT to treasure mtn downhill. Uphill not recommended.

 Don't even think about connecting the CDT with Treasure trail without following the GPS on your phone - it's very hard to find those cairns even with GPS, I'm super happy to have made this connection from CDT to Treasure trail, but be prepared for some bushwhacking and climbing over fallen trees.
