Steep climb up, but the fastest way to get up onto Jumpingpound Ridge. Lots of hikers use this approach, so be nice.

On the Cox descent it was wet with some snow near the top in the sections that had tree cover. The bottom 3/4 was dry.

Large tree down across trail, blocking trail, 2 trees down on upper section, near Cox Hill intersection. Rest of the trail is in good shape.

Snow is clear from road all the way to top of Cox. Construction crews started doing major work on the Powderface road. Had to hike in the bush...
