Once you reach the top of Cowels Mt., just continue on to the next peak. Far less people on this trail which was very nice. No shade. Bring water.

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.
