    I had a great time! We took 3-3.5 hours on the loop and the trail was muddy but it didn't interfere with having a great walk.

    I can take 3 people. If there are people travelling by LRT, I could pick them up at the Crowfoot station at 8:45 AM.

      Hi Jackie, we will all be meeting Raymond the hike leader at the PetroCanada station about 15 miles west of Calgary. The station is just past the Hwy 22 interchange and is on the right hand side of the road.

    Hope there's a chance to do this hike another time.

    I hate to be a bearer of bad news but according to Kananaskis Country the road to the trailhead is still closed. You can access Cox Hil from Dawson and drop down to Jumpingpound but that would make for a long day. http://www.albertaparks.ca/kananaskis-country/advisories-public-safety/kananaskis-closed-areas-(including-highways).aspx

      Its always nice to have you looking out for the group :)

    Now with the change from Jumping Pound mountain to loop, what is the total elevation?

    July 28, 2013

    • Becky S.

      According to sites I've seen, it's less than 100m elevation gain. I've done both the mountain and loop on MTB, and the loop is MUCH easier ;-)

      July 29, 2013

    • Raymond H

      some books say it's 100M only. but there are ups and downs

      July 29, 2013

  • Tracey F.

    Hi, I have done this hike many times - elevation gain and loss is 800 feet and its a 9 km loop classed as easy as described in .
    "Kananaaskis Country Trail Guide." by Gillean Daffern - 4th edition vol. 2 Its an easier hike but it still has lots of up /down or it wouldnt be a hike.

    July 29, 2013

    • Raymond H

      good to know that someone has done this before :)

    My dad is 72 years old, can I bring him with me?

    July 29, 2013

    • Tracey F.

      Becky - I have run with people who complete marathons in their 70's! If you Dad is fit and can handle a 3 hour walk with some hills and does this regularly (at least 2 times a week) he can do this IF he has proper footwear - not running shoes. Its a hiking trail with uneven surfaces so hiking boots/shoes are a must. Really his fitness level and steadiness on uneven surfaces is the key.

      July 29, 2013

    • Raymond H

      I concur

      July 29, 2013

  • Cheryle

    I can drive and take 3 passenger with me.

    July 29, 2013

    • Cheryle

      Hi Anne: You are most certainly welcome to catch a ride with me. Sorry, though, I don't live anywhere near an LRT so will have to meet you at the carpool location.

      July 29, 2013

    • Anne

      Ok, thank you! :)

      July 29, 2013

  • June

    Won't be back in town by then.

    July 29, 2013

  • Tracey F.

    I can drive and take 3 ppl

    July 27, 2013

  • Denise

    I can drive too and have room for three hikers.

    July 26, 2013

  • Becky S.

    Forgot to put whether I could drive or not! If needed, I would be happy to drive. I could carry 3 hikers aside from myself. Thanks, and looking forward to meeting some fellow hikers ;-)
