Hike Cowles Mtn + Pyles Peak

Join us for a moderate 3-hour hike conquering not only one, but two mountains. Don’t worry, the side trip to the lesser visited Pyles Peak is an easy 2-mile addition that branches off from the summit of Cowles Mountain.

All levels of experience, age and fitness are welcome. Seriously, we will take it slow on this 6-mile out and back trip, enjoying the outdoors and having good conversations.
