Don't do this if you are fit or don't know how to fix flat tires.

As an evening, non-shuttle loop this is your best bet for Cox Hill. It starts with a decent warm up on a gravel road, followed by a long and challenging climb up Lusk, before tackling Cox. This loop misses out on Jumpingpound Ridge and that smaller summit, but still rewards you with some alpine and K-country's longest descent down Cox.
