My wife and I finished our 5 Peak challenge by summiting Cowles Mt (#4) and Pyles Peak (#5).  You can read the entire log and see the track file here.  You can only get to Pyles Peak via Cowles Mountain - there are no other trails leading to Pyles Peak.  Pyles Peak is only about 1.5 miles away from Cowles Mt, making summiting both peaks very doable.  Unlike Cowles Mountain, we ran into only 2 other people on the trail.  Pyles Peak is not as high as Cowles Mountain, but the 360 degree views are very good.  The trail is not very difficult, but it has a few tricky spots.  Trekking poles are helpful.
