Nice hike moderate until the last 0.25 miles almost straight up! Nice view. Take a glass of wine and a snack. A perfect place to watch the sunset!

Excellent hike ! Started at Big Rock and did Cowles and then went onto Pyles. We did not realize how far Pyles was from Cowles. It was pretty warm too. When I do this again, I'll have a bigger hat and more water !

This was a great addition to cowles mountain if you want a bit of an extra challenge. Due to the nature of climbing two peaks ultimately the way back is challenging as well to get back to the top of cowles mountain! Very few people compared to cowles which was nice.
