When I come to Cowles Mountain I do like coming earlier in the morning because not as many people on the trail which when you come later it gets rather dusty and besides I like to come when things are quite to get that meditative aspect.
You can go up and come straight down within one hour no more than two or you can wander along the many trails that continues throughout the park. If you do so it's best to go to the visitor center and get familiar with the area. It's not hard to find people willing to help out.
There are restrooms in the staging area and a coffee shop across the street. You will find parking (but don't park in the bike lane like many people do) or you can take bus #115 and walk a block north.
Today I notice lots of trash on the trail, more so than ever before. I am a bit surprised because most hikers and people who care about nature would not disrespect it. This gives me an idea to start taking a bag with me and picking up some of the trash when I make this hike.
