Why choose a trail at Jumpingpound Mountain?

Jumpingpound Mountain (elevation 2,225 m (7,300 ft)) is a mountain located 24 km (15 mi) west of Bragg Creek, Alberta in Kananaskis Country. It was named after Jumpingpound Creek in 1949 because a steep bank near the mouth was used as a buffalo jump by the Blackfoot First Nations.

The Jumpingpound Mountain is located in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada. At an elevation of 2,871 meters (9,416 feet), it is the sixth-highest peak in the province. The mountain is named for the Jumpingpound Creek, which originates on its slopes. The creek was so named by early fur traders because of the many beavers they saw swimming in it.

The mountain is a popular destination for hikers, climbers, and skiers. There are several trails that lead to the summit, including the North Face Trail, which is considered to be one of the most difficult routes in the area. The summit offers stunning views of the surrounding mountains and valleys.

The Jumpingpound Mountain is also home to several glaciers, including the Jumpingpound Glacier and the Palliser Glacier. These glaciers are retreating rapidly due to climate change, and may soon disappear altogether.
