JUMPINGPOUND RIDGE TRAIL
Distance 14.6 km return, height gain 701 m, moderately strenuous
A not too strenuous ridge walk — the ridge is broad — along the entire N–S axis of Jumpingpound Mountain. Taking in the summit of Jumpingpound Mountain is optional, but NOTE this short diversion is now an official viewpoint!
Start: 1. Via Powderface Trail (road) at Lusk Pass trailhead. The new bridge at the start is a few metres upstream of the old location.
2. Canyon Creek parking.
Difficulty: Good trail all the way.
Note: With two vehicles you can traverse the entire ridge to Canyon Creek parking (13.8 km).
- Spectacular view NW to mounts Lougheed and Rundle
