The trail to Cowels is always crowded, but once you start the trail to Pyles Peak it’s much less crowded and the views are beautiful!

so nice and quiet once you get past Cowles, only about 25% actually trying to use their masks.

Such a fun hike I didn’t want it to end. Lots of rocks and obstacles. Well marked. Crowded on Cowles Mountain but empty on Pyles Peak trail.

Very crowded on the way up to Cowles, after that I only ran across a few people. To many people with no trail edict on Cowles.

Heavily trafficked trail up to Cowles. Even at sunrise the summit was crowded. The trail to Pyles is much less busy with very pretty views.

Not much shade. Rough terrain. A lot of non-maskers, if you're worried about that. Will definitely be back to try out the other trails.
