Not heavily trafficked and definitely a nice different view going up Cowles Summit. For those easily scared of heights, there are some parts of the trail that are open and narrow but nothing too crazy. Nice and quiet hike with pretty nice view on the way up.

Beautiful Views, Pretty Fragrant Flowers, Less Crowded than Main Trail, Heard Some Bees Beware
