Beautiful cool Fall day to hike! Up Laura Cowles and above ridgeline the chin was socked in by clouds but down below the beautiful leaf colors were especially vibrant w/ sun streaming into the Pleasant Valley w/ nice views on trek down Sunset Ridge. Laura Cowles is very direct and somewhat steep up. Fairly constant 'climbing' (after approx 1/2 way point) but plenty of good rock and tree handholds. This route is also more sheltered from the wind and elements compared to Sunset Ridge. Hiked with our 3 1/2 yr old Sheltie, she did great. Take your time, find your groove and enjoy the beauty of the Underhill State Park!

Hiked this yesterday (autumn equinox)...it was a BEAUTIFUL day, and the exposure of Sunset Ridge was just perfect..I started from Underhill State Park so there was a nice lead in/warm up on the CCC road, then it was all up! Such a satisfying challenge! I would not recommend hiking this route if you are not conditioned or if you have a dog. Very steep and strenuous... it is also very exposed, so be aware of the weather and pack ample protection/resources!

I did it two days ago and am really feeling sore. I stretched so well better, during and after. The view is AMAZING up top but not an easy hike by any means.
