Jumping Pound Cox Hill - July 21 2008
and photos by Sharon Bader and Lee Lau unless otherwise noted.
Jumping Pound Cox Hill is a classic Kananaskis Country ride. We start our ride at the Dawson Trail head, ride down the Powerderface trail - the two wheel drive road you took to get to Dawson and then start at the Jumping Pound trail head. This loop is 37km and you climb over 1000m to a high point of 2250m.
The ride starts with 20km road ride along the Powderface trail.
Up and down taking in the valley views.
Once at the trail head you will find new maps posted. These maps are at all the major intersections helping you along your way.
We didn't take a lot of pictures on the climb since we were busy climbing. Once on the ridge you can relax and take in the views.
and the meandering fields.

Back to the car and the beer.
There are some technical areas on this trail, its pretty old so its pretty worked. It also sees a couple of races on it a year, rain or shine so its pretty rooty and rocky.
