Coming off the Ridge trail, Cox tips down in a fast, flowing descent before abruptly pointing back up. Once you're over the summit, it's a looooong way down to connect with Tom Snow. The main descent is very rough and eroded, with loads of root steps and sometimes a runoff stream. You will sometimes encounter hikers coming up the main descent, so keep your eyes open.

Access Info

Connects to Tom Snow at the north end [head west on TS to get to Dawson]. At the south end, there's a junction with the Jumping Pound Ridge Trail.

All dry except for one of the first switch backs going down coxhill. There is a ride around so essentially all clear!
