Very good hike, steady slope for most of the way. There are a few lookout spots on the way to the top that houses an amazing view of the kananaskis country area! When I went there was a tremendous amount of snow about 3/4 of the way up, but it just added to the challenge. The view at the top is gorgeous. You will get a beautiful sight of the mountain ridge to the west. Overall it was a great hike, would definitely recommend to the experienced hiker!

As of May 15, there was still quite a bit of snow on the trails towards the top

Good for trail running as well. A few muddy spots but overall very good.

Trail is a little muddy and parts still have snow but over all a great day. Definitely and easy walk so good for beginners dogs and children

Beautiful hike.

This really is a great intermediate hiking trail. Very beautiful and some sections and serene.

a lot of exploring to do up top, check it out, take a look around.

Slow steady climb. Nice day and a nice panoramic view at the rock cropping summit. Wonderful place to enjoy lunch. Have not spent much time in the area. Neat to see Moose Mountain from the Cox Hill vantage point.

Took the moose mnt. Road down then circled back onto elbow valley trail for a 10km.

Tricky to find trail around the river crossing. Bring crossing shoes. Nice steady climb.

His was a slog at times. My legs wanted to quit and did many times. We took ridgeback up and Tom snow down. 12.8km loop, we omitted the top 3k loop and I'm glad. This one was a tough one but a great time along the wooded ridge.

Diverse trail with a river crossing early on, so prepare accordingly. You'll also find some steep sections towards the end to make this a bit more challenging than advertised. We had trouble figuring out where the actual trail ended, so keep an eye on the map! Great views once you're up there, though, and lots of nice spots to stop for lunch.

Amazing views at the summits! Well worth the climb! Some ice along the trail and quite a bit of snow starting about halfway up (May 8/17).

Very challenging but the view at the end is totally worth it. There are a couple spots along the way to look out (views of moose mountain). Starts off with a lot of elevation gain then you can barely notice it until you get close to the top. Took 6 hours round trip with some snow on the trail.

I am chuckling over Will's comment about nearly dying. I, too, almost died the first time I did Cox Hill: on snowshoes!, Great hike!

A really nice hiking with good views. The trail was not continuously steep. It always had some parts where you can catch your breath.

Steep but beautiful views are well worth the climb. We started at jumping pound trailhead and came across ridgeline and down cox hill. Requires a vehicle drop.

Love this place

I backpacked a piece of this trail anti-clockwise to Big Elbow back country campground and back out the same route, 20k in all. Very little elevation gain, wide open fire road, excellent views all the way of the surrounding mountains. There are 4 major washouts from the 2013 flood, 2 to be wary of. The first is the trailhead, it's gone from its original location at the Trailhead parking area. The trail has to be accessed via the suspension bridge a little further up. The second is at about 8km in, the trail is completely gone and a little skirmish up the river bank is required to get back to the trail. Temps in the high 20's in and out the next day. Camp ground had wood, an axe, toilets, bear lockups for your gear and great views. This was a training hike for me carrying 30lbs so I aimed for little elevation and short distance. My preference is elevated views hence only 3 stars

Me and a couple friends hiked this loop over 3 days, with camping planned one night at Mt Romulus backcountry campsite, and the other at Mt Tombstone backcountry campsite, and had a great time. The only concern for bikers is the LONG high pass between the two campsites (NW and SW corners of the loop), but otherwise is a good hike. We went in July, and woke up to snow the first morning, which quickly melted. The paths are good and worn for bikers and hikers alike, don't recall any real complications.
