Canyon Ridge Trail is a strenuous 10.3 mile hike, horseback ride, mountain bike ride, or motorcycle trail. Start on the Damfino Lakes Trail #625 in an old clear-cut, quickly entering mature forest. In 0.7 miles, a junction is encountered. The left fork is Canyon Ridge Trail. Turn left on the trail and continue 0.5 mile to the junction with Boundary Way Trail #688. Take another left to begin the Boundary Way Trail. The route offers good views of Canadian mountains, the Canyon Creek Valley, Church and Bearpaw Mountains. The ridgeline trail receives minimal maintenance and may be difficult for bikes, motorcycles and horses. The first half mile of the west end of the trail has been obliterated by a 1980 timber harvest. Thus, there is no west end trailhead at this time.

Directions: From Glacier, Travel east on Mt. Baker 542 for 1.9 miles to Canyon Creek Road #31. Turn left on Road #31 and continue about 15 miles. The trailhead and parking area are on the right side after the road takes two switchbacks.
