Great hike with excellent views. This is a do able hike for most everyone. Just take your time. Nice plaque at the top to take a picture with. It is rather rocky and you need to be careful to not twist an ancle. I would not do it after a rain. If you take your time it takes about an hour up and 45 minutes to come down.

It's a nice hike length, bring lots of water in the summer. It is a busy trail so if you aren't okay with that you might want to go at an "off time". It doesn't have much shale so you don't slide a lot which is nice.

In town visiting family and our daughter wanted to go on a hike and found this one. It really was a great hike! She was the only one with hiking shoes which would have made it easier for us, but we managed with our running shoes. It isn't super hard but also isn't super easy so don't recommend it for people that aren't in fairly decent shape. The views were great!

Started at the trailhead and hike up and over. The road down the other side is steeper and sloppy with the gravel. It is busy on the weekend but host a beautiful view.

I was looking for something else to do after seeing all the usual tourist places. I really liked that this hike was easy to get to without a car. Just get a bus or Green Line to SDSU and cross the bridge to get to the bus stop in front of the Jack in the Box. The 115 bus takes 10-20min (depending on traffic) to get to Jackson Drive and Goldcrest Drive. Then a 5-10min walk to the trailhead. On a Friday morning, it took less then 1hr to get there, and longer coming back since I took buses back to downtown.

It’s a moderate trail but very rocky grounds with lots of sun exposure. It took me 1hr to hike to the top and another hour to hike to Pyles Peak. Got to see some hawks (I think) at Pyles Peak summit. There were a lot of people going up and down Cowles and only a handful at Pyles.

The everso popular Cowles Mountain has another side that most folks have not explored. Entering Cowles off of Barker Way is a very different experience than the popularized route. The trail is considered moderate, although, the signs may read "difficult". It is difficult if you are inebriated, or high, or have a pessimistic mindset, or are a complainer, or only began your exercise regime the day you tried this trail, or have medical issues that involve the heart. Otherwise, here are the top 5 reasons to try the "better half."

First, you can find parking because the entry is within a neighborhood. You may have to trek an additional block or two but it's worth it. Respect the neighborhood. There is only one outhouse and the malodor is vomit producing.

Second, this particular trail is the service road and allows not only dogs but horses, bikes, and emergency vehicles only. With that being said, the trail is a size and a half wide of a car, not too many travelers and you can hike with a strong steady pace. Trust this, the incline for 1.5 miles ranges from 45 to 65 degrees, my speculation. The trail is well maintained with rocks, dirt and gravel, uneven ground, a few ditches, and there is no let up on oxygen.

Third, dog etiquette. Yes, you may bring your pet. Dog's must be leashed. Yes, your dog-- that never barks or attacks anyone. Leash your dog, clean up after your dog. It is frustrating to bask in the breeze and then smell dog poop and step in dog poop and then watch you, as the caretaker allow your dog to do his/her thing and ignore that the trail is shared. Same mantra for your horse, cat, rabbit or any pet.

Fourth, the trail accommodates many levels of challenge each step you take. If you are a novice you will have a vigorous walking workout. If you are intermediate you can challenge the course and run 3 minutes/walk two minutes the entire 1.5 incline. If you are advanced you can run the entire trail. The variety of the fitness plans you can create on this mountain can last an entire year. Even young children will find the hike exhilarating...unless you have whiny, complaining children. Keep in mind the trail is mostly sun until it is an hour or so prior to sunset. The views are stunning but the sun is a stunner. As it is closer to sunset, the shade is refreshing.

Fifth, seriously be prepared. Every post speaks about water and sunscreen. I will add snacks, hiking boots or ankle sneakers. If you are into the hiking culture, invest in boots $100.00 or less. Walking on rocks, gravel, boulders, and other trail dynamics can take a toll on the body. Keep a multi-wear headband on your person. Compression socks for kiddos and adults and/or hiking socks are the best even for short hikes. No-nos: heels, vans, slick bottoms, jeans, or flip-flops...I have seen them and shake my head.

Enjoy Cowles' other half and I'd like to know if the tips helped your hike be more enjoyable.

One of my hiking goals is to complete the Mission Trails 5 Peak Challenge. We do not make it to the San Diego area too often. When we do come to the area, we try to hike somewhere. This past July, we hiked the Cowles Mountain trail. The summit is about 1592 feet above sea level. The trail to get up to the is not strenuous. I would rate it moderate.

The trail is very popular. Lots of folks of all ages hike Cowles Mountain. We arrived around 10:30am, and it was difficult to find parking. Finally found some street parking not too faraway. It was a bit hot that day. Probably about 80 degrees if memory serves me correctly. Make sure to bring a liter or two of water plus some sunscreen when you come over. Some parts of the trail are rocky so watch your step. Other than that plus the heat, the trail was not very challenging. Just stop, enjoy the views, and take some pics if you need a break.

A good workout overall.

Moderate to difficult climb. This is a 1.5 to 2 hour climb with the prize of a beautiful view waiting at top.

Pro Tip- it’s pronounced “COALS” not “cowels.” And NO ONE in California Uses the word, “Cali.” Anyway, Cowles is a great place to see the fireworks display at Lake Murray (and as far west as the Harbor) and get some exercise at the same time. The string of lights coming down the hill afterwards was pretty impressive as well!

Son 5 kilómetros en un camino bastante bien arreglado, no batallas tanto para subir y vale la pena ya que en un día soleado tienes una vista a San Diego
