    Cowles Mountain

    Golfcrest Drive, San Diego, California
    8 reviews

    Cowles Mountain is a great hike and very accessible. I've seen people of all ages walk it, run it, with and without their dogs. Not too difficult but certainly a good workout. It is well maintained and used often. It can be very hot during the peak of the day and yes, rattlesnakes live here too!
