    The victim, whose identity was not known, was hiking with a male companion before falling and breaking his ankle about three-quarters of a mile from the base.

    Cowles Mountain is the largest peak in the City of San Diego and is located in Mission Trails Regional Park between Santee and Lake Murray.
