JimmyJazzSpectacular hike!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 10, 2017


My favorite hike that I've done in the Wasatch to date. I don't know if it's been a good year or I was just lucky with when I went, but the alpine wildflowers in Alexander Basin and along the west-side traverse down to Baker Spring were the best I've ever seen outside Washington.

Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2017


Up from Butler Fork at 7:20 a.m. Two hours to the top of Gobblers Knob. The trail was pretty busy, especially later in the day but we had the summit of the Knob to ourselves for a few minutes. The sky north of the GSL was a bit hazy; it is wildfire season after all.

The wild flowers in Alexander Basin are Outrageous. Gorgeous hike with clear views from the summit. It is fun to do this one the weekend after the winter gate is opened. Third time on the summit.

    Nice quick hike to see the fall colors, cool views of the Cottonwood Ridge and SLC from the top. The person who named this mountain must've really liked turkeys.

    Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2014


    Ditched a bike at the bottom of Alexander Basin for the return trip back to the car. Started at the Bowman TH to Baker Pass. Great hike! Be sure to check out the fossilized sea shells in Alexander Basin!

    Date Climbed: Sep 2, 2015


    Up and down via Butler Fork - snow was corniced along the north side of the ridge in early June but very easy to navigate around. My 2017 summit required crampons and an ice axe due to the late snow melt. The ridge is a lot of fun in these conditions. Don't let the false summit fool you!

    The false summits were so rude. This hike seemed to go on forever compared to Raymond.

    SabineInUtahFun afternoon  Sucess!


    Hiked up the peak with RB and AKB (12). Great climb for kids and close to SLC for a half-day adventure or less. Hiked from Lambs Canyon.

    Utah Guy is lying. He only has 50 peaks. This peak is better if you make turkey noises all the way up. Everyone will love you if you do it. Have a picnic on top. Bring a poodle. It's a wilderness area and everything goes.

    Relatively quick ascent compared to Raymond... a tad higher, but not nearly as fun. Beautiful views and a comfy summit area made for a good 50th peak for me!

    Date Climbed: Sep 20, 2014


    I thought this was the official 50th peak I am logging on Summitpost. I have done more peaks, but I don't know exact dates, or the name of the mountain that I was on, or there isn't a Summitpost page for the mountain, either way, this was to make 50, and the Aspens a blaze below would have been really fitting. Added this with Mt. Raymond for a fun filled day! Happy almost 50th! Guess I better make 50 a great one!

    Solo hike/jog from Butler Fork. The weather forecast said 60% of rain and there was none of it. The north ridge is a little spicier than expected — slipped and cut my leg a tad. Took 2 hours and 40 minutes round-trip.

    Date Climbed: Jul 24, 2014


    Hiked it via Alexander Basin with my wife. There were quite a few people on the trail, including a group of about 15 ~60 year-olds. We passed them, but several of them ended up passing us and beating us to the top. Those guys could climb!
    A great day. Steep. Beautiful. Just a little patch of snow left in Alexander Basin.

    Climbed via Butler Fork with my wife and the Wasatch Mountain Club. Beautiful ascent! The section from the saddle to the summit really gets the heart pumping! Great day in the mountains. Perfect weather!

    HardmanTrail Runner Magic  Sucess!
    Date Climbed: Jun 7, 2014


    I had been spending too much time on the bike commute to work eyeballing snowpack conditions on the western face of Gobbler's Knob between Baker Spring and Baker Pass and finally decided to take a chance when the green to white ratio was skewed more heavily in favor of green.

    Ascended via Bowman's Fork trail and descended the same route via nice boot-ski short cut that connected the summit to the carpet soft trail.

    Wish I had descended via Alexander Basin, as the snow looked fun and the trail looked empty.

    Date Climbed: Jun 14, 2013


    Many ascents of Gobblers Knob. Last time, trail run via Bowman's Fork, making Gobblers Knob before making way to Mount Raymond.

    Alexander Basin is a far more interesting (albeit steeper/shorter) approach. Interesting limestone and shale/aggregate formations on display.
