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).

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.
