Redirecting CNAME to secure force.com domain

Hi, our organization is trying to redirect traffic to a specific secure force.com site domain using a CNAME record, but it doesn't seem to be working.

Our current Salesforce site url is:
We've setup a CNAME in our web/DNS host to point enroll.rusticpathways.com to rusticpathways.secure.force.com.

When you visit https://enroll.rusticpathways.com/studentapp/SALanding?sid=f119025b-4731-f802-f2a3-8c679fb463e7 you will receive a standard Salesforce "URL No Longer Exists" page.

Quick note: we don't have a SSL certificate yet for the domain enroll.rusticpathways.com, so you'll need to "ignore" your browser's unsecured connection warning to load the above page.

Any thoughts on why we may be receiving this error?

Thank you for your help,
