This is a great after work hike by any approach. I climb this every year for exercise. I have approached by Porter Fork, Butler Fork and Baker Pass, Butler Fork and Dog's Lake approach and Alexander Basin. I would have to say my favorite is the Alexander Basin approach. Gobbler's is possible in winter by any of the aforementioned approaches.

I hiked this in preparation for Lone Peak. It's a nice hike, not too difficult, though the last stretch from Baker Pass up to the summit is pretty steep and rocky. There are great views all around. On the way down I stopped off at Circle All Peak. That's the 8,707 foot point on the ridge separating Butler Fork and Mill A Gulch, and is a nice hike in itself.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
