Pyles Peak is a prominent bump in the series of mountaintops stretching between Cowles Mountain in the south and Fortuna Mountain in the north. Collectively, these high points make up a small mountain range labeled on old maps as “Long Mountain.” The entire range consists of granitic rocks that have been gradually uplifted over many millions of years. Just north of Pyles Peak, there’s a deep notch in the range, where Mission Gorge Road passes through, and farther north is an even deeper notch— Mission Gorge—where the San Diego River has spent millions of years carving its way clear through the steadily rising chain of mountains. A somewhat long and tiring out-and-back trek can get you to the rocky summit of Pyles Peak, where you can enjoy a well-earned view east toward Santee and west toward the ocean.
