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.

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.
