Canyon Creek Downhill Trail (or CCDH) is a descending-only, formidable technical trail that feels closer to a black, than a blue rated trail. This bold creation is unquestionably difficult. Let's be clear, if you struggle with the steeper black trails of adjacent Tiger mountain, you may be very challenged by CCDH's rough and rooty character.

CCDH features challenging root sections, carefully not-removed natural rocks, and just enough descending angle to keep you on your toes. In contrast to the blue-rated "flow" trails like Poppin' Tops, many riders will find CCDH more challenging. Some refer to it as "Dark-blue". Combine CCDH & Raging Tiger climb out with No Service & Return Policy for the brand new defacto "Raging 8" figure eight route

Canyon Creek downhill trail is brought to you thanks to the Washington State DNR & the hard work of Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance.

      Hard to believe that this trail was slick and muddy just a couple weeks ago. Now all but the top two sections are bone dry and starting to get dusty!

      Awesome trail! A little dry and loose in spots but that's part of the fun. Agree with the 'hard blue' rating, rooty and techy but not crazy...

      reporter Great trail. Nice work Evergreen. Running great. Personally don’t think this is anything other than a blue. It’s not that steep. Just has some...

       Awesome trail, like a longer, faster version of No Service (plus fun optional small boulder drop). Thanks for the new build and nice return via Raging Tiger. One of my new favorites in Raging.

       I found it refreshing to ride this steep rooty rough cut trail, stark contrast to berms, flow, and jumps of Popin’ Tops and Flow state. I too found it to be more of a “dark blue” of which some people won’t appreciate the rooty stuff especially on on wet day. Lower 1/4 of trail is a bit smoother. Thanks Evergreen for continuing to build great new trails!????
