A longer, much less crowded trail to go up Cowles Mountain.

Overview

Features: Views — Wildflowers
Dogs: Leashed

Description

The can be accessed from a couple of points: one is located at the end of Big Rock Rd. and the other is the Cowles Mountain Trailhead at Big Rock Park. Parking is plentiful and is located in a residential area.

This trail is well groomed and marked and has less than a tenth of the traffic experienced at the popular Cowles Mountain Trail. There is little to no shade on this trail so bring plenty of water.

From the trailhead, you begin your gradual but constant climb to the summit. The end of this trail meets the service road that will take you the rest of the way up to the top of Cowels Mountain.
