Panoramic views of San Diego County from its foothills to its blue shoreline lure hikers to this inland peak. Three trails access this extremely popular viewpoint, so if quiet solitude is your goal, pick another hike. But you cant say youve hiked San Diego County if you havent hiked Cowles Mountain.
