Lusk Pass isn't much of a ride by itself, but it can be used as an alternate start for Jumpingpound Ridge, Jumpingpound Loop or Cox Hill to give those rides a little extra pizazz. This trail is an essential connector for a ride from Kananaskis to Bragg Creek. Short and mostly doubletrack with a few sections of singletrack, the trail is consistently stony with well-drained soils as it passes through open forests of lodgepole pine and juniper. Ride across SR 968 and up the embankment. Almost immediately Lusk trail enters its own quiet valley away from the road and climbs gently alongside Lusk Creek. As you progress up the valley a couple of steep hills will make you work to gain the pass.
