“A great descent which starts well above treeline and drops into great forest singletrack.”

Park at Snowblind campground up Tomichi Pass Rd. (County Rd 888). Pedal 888 up to the treeline; you'll find a trail sign marking the beginning of the Canyon Creek Trail. It starts off with a short pedal followed by a significant hike-a-bike where you'll push nearly a 1,000 vertical feet up a rugged and loose series of switchbacks. A very long, delightful descent follows.
