Great 1/2 hike for Beginners! Short hike to the summit of Jumpingpound Mountain.

This is a great short hike that will only take about ½ day. Take Hwy. 1 west and take the exit for the Sibbald Creek Trail. Follow this road until you hit the Powderface Trail. (NOTE: this road is closed from December 1 – May 14 annually). Follow this road for approximately 15km’s.  Take note that this road is quite narrow and bumpy so it can be a bit slow going.

We parked in a small pullout on the west side of the road. The trailhead is marked by a small sign on the opposite side. The hike starts in the trees and crosses a small bridge. It climbs steadily for 2km’s. After that, you will break out of the trees and head left towards the summit. It’s a relatively short climb to the summit (only ½ km) and you will be granted with amazing views in every direction. 

The hike took us a total of three hours with a break at the top. 

Note: Watch out for Mountain Bikers. 

Happy Trails.

Hike Jumpingpound Summit Reviews

Trail was in great condition and very quiet today, only met 4 groups up to the summit and we had the ridge walk all to ourselves. Views are fabulous and this trail makes for a great day out.
