Views are beautiful but the non-hikers hiking with their loud music ruins the vibe. And best stay out of the way of the ultras, lest they crash into you. Watch out for poop, poop bags, and litter along the way. The Fortunas and Kwaay Pay are more nature friendly. Hiked at 6:24am and ended a bit after 10am after snack at the peak and photo/traffic breaks along the way. Temps were pleasant.

A much more quiet trail once you get past Cowles Mountain. Starts with a gentle decline and then descends more rapidly, so keep in mind the uphill return! A great trail to run, not as rocky as Cowles, until it gets a little bit too steep at the end. Views are ok

A little steep at the end but nothing crazy. The little bit of shade in the beginning was nice.
