Challenging trail leading from Dawson day use area to the top of Cox Hill. Can be connected to Jumpingpound Ridge by decending the southern slopes.

Tough at the beginning, steady uphill, but easier once you hit the switchbacks. Your view is all tree line until you hit the “false summit” then it opens up to beautiful mountains and wild flowers.

Nice hike...short drive from Calgary...sooo if Burstall is a 4 i guess this would be a 31/2.
Not difficult...slow steady grade...spectacular view from the top and for lunch!

Amazing view at the top. I didn't find this hike to be to difficult and it was during winter. Can't wait to go back and see it during the summer.
