This hike can be accessed via Powderface Trail which only opens from the month of June-November. There are 3 ways you can get to the summit by searching up the Jumpingpound Ridge trail or Jumpingpound Summit trail and plan accordingly.

This offers a 360 degree panoramic view of the mountains. The trail up is a wide trail with gentle switchbacks, great for beginners. On the way, you will reach a grassy flat area which takes you to the base of the summit and after that is a short steep climb to the high point.

Overall, a great hike to go back due to multiple trailhead starts and connecting trails to cox hill and moose mountain (if you are prepared).

We did Tyrwhitt to Highwood— magnificent view!

The first half of this hike was fantastic, beautiful time of year to be out in the mountains. Unfortunately the conditions once we crested were extremely windy and hiking the ridge line was sketchy due to this. The way down from Pocaterra was very difficult and you need to be very aware of hikers above you sending down rocks, not for the casual hiker or faint of heart. All in all it was a great day, just be aware the the "Hard" designation is not wrong on this one.

Did it today with my sister who is a beginner hiker. Beginning is switch-backs, manageable for a beginner if you take your time. There wasn't another soul on the trail. Being just the two of us made me worry about bears in the open parts, but luckily all we saw for wildlife were some chipmunks. Great views at the top from both sides. Would recommend.
