You have to climb Cowles Mountain first which is plagued with visitors. But once you pass the summit and continue on the Pyles Peak Trail, there is significantly less people and is much nicer. The trail is very rocky so make sure you are wearing comfortable and sturdy shoes.

I climbed the mountain this past weekend! However, I didn't realize it was connect to another mountain range. My joy came when I noticed how it was just a few people I passed on this trail. My goal is to climb as many fun loving mountains as I can until...mane ole I'm enjoying myself!
