Peak five of the five peak challenge. Five in one day 15.2 miles 4494 feet of gain. Cowles, Pyles, South and North Fortuna, and Kwaay Paay. Good times.

Can't believe I finished this trail! Every time I thought I should be at the summit there was another steep hill to climb. Quite challenging but well worth the effort.

This is always a fun hike. It can get a little slippery in spots from loose rocks, but the view from the top is worth it.

Pretty good workout. Shorter, but steeper than Cowles Mountain. Views are good, but not great. Coming down is a bit tricky due to some areas of loose rock.

Great hike. Good view of downtown when you get to the top.
