Join us on Saturday, December 14th at 9am for a Pure in the Wild double peak adventure to Cowles and Pyles Peak in Mission Trails. We’ll meet at the Mesa Road trail head to head up the back side of Cowles Mountain. We’ll celebrate on the first peak, then continue on the trail less traveled over to Pyles Peak. After all the hard work we’ll head to Pure Project at Balboa Park for some well deserved refreshing beers. Hikers will receive $1 off all beers with valid wrist band handed out at the hike.
Big Rock Trail to Cowles and Pyles Peak
Moderate -Trailhead to Cowles – 4.8mi, 1236 ft elevation gain
Difficult – Trailhead to Pyles – 7.3mi, 2050 ft elevation gain
This trail has very steep inclines and declines. It contains large boulder steps and small loose rock & gravel. We recommend this adventure for highly active folks or those prepared for a challenge. Please know your limits. Please wear sturdy shoes, sun protection, bring layers for cool mornings and warm afternoons, bring summit snacks and more water than you think you’ll need (recommend at least 2 liters).
See you on the trail!
