North ridge from Bowman Fork. Skied two laps on the northwest face (summitted both times) in settled (but deep and faceshot-friendly) powder.
Also summer-hiked it with my kid brother back in '02ish.

Did a quick up-and-down hike of Gobblers Knob on a nice September afternoon. Went solo but ran into a chummy bow hunter on the way down.

All by myself on this one. Attempted earlier in the season but had to turn back due to weather. Did not see anyone on this climb and I really enjoyed the solitude. On top of the ridge I saw lady bugs galoure clumped together. I nice day hike. Hope to go back in the spring of 08'and do both Gobblers Knob and Mount Raymond.

This hike is cool because it is much milder than the peaks adjacent to it.

This is a wonderful escape from Salt Lake at any time of the year. The hike is strenuous, but not too demanding, and the views of the surrounding peaks are wonderful.

Friday the 13th turned out to be a lucky and beautiful day. We had to don crampons for the final 1,200' of the ascent. Good snow conditions allowed us to ascend the northwest side of Gobblers and to plunge and glissade nearly straight down the north side. Fifth time on the summit, second winter ascent. Add one more for the 15th of June 2007, so 6 times at the top. Make that seven. 11-20-07. From Butler Fork; no snow to speak of, and that is too bad! 11-27-07 #8 - from Bowman Fork w/ Lana. Icy spots on upper half of trail from Bowman Fork TH. 03-18-08 Ascent #9, with Brent. Tons of snow. Climbed summit ridge from the northwest all the way. 4-08-08 Ascent #10. With Brent, Lana & Dave took our "new" route, breaking trail in one foot of new powder the entire way up. Fantastic cornices were a beautiful surprise for so late in the season. 4+25 up from Bowman Fork TH (on Millcreek Canyon Road). #11 9-2-08 with Anne, Brent & Alex via Bowman Fork. Traces of the season's first snow covered much of the trail above 8,000'. #12 (1-23-08) w/ Brent, combo with a climb of Mt. Raymond. From Butler Fork TH. Wonderful fall day. 2+06 from TH to summit. #13 w/ Brent, from Bowman Fork, n.w. ridge to summit(2+10 trailbreaking in 12" of powder). 3+47 up 2+12 down. #14 with tons of new powder. With Brent, Christine & Dave. 4+12 up 2+07 down. The now-familiar snow route. #15 w/ ZeeJay on 4-23-09 Still plenty of snow on the north-facing slopes and the summit ridges. Snow route, Bowman Fork. Snowshoes the final hour up. Beautiful day. 3+12 up 1+48 down. #16 8-6-09 Solo via Bowman Fork. PB time (1+59)to very windy pass & summit. #17 8-11-09 w/ Dave & Brent, 1st to Mt. Raymond, then Gobblers - yes, a two-fer. #18 Twofer w/ ZeeJay; Gobblers first, then Raymond, only 8" of snow along ridges. #19 1-5-10 Bowman Fork/Terraces rte. W/ Dave. Packed trail for 1+35, then snowshoes in less-than-wonderful conditions (not enough snow). 3+38 up 2+36 down. Cold & windy on top: what else is new? #20 2-4-10 Old winter route, much snow. #21 7-24-10 Via Mill B North and Desolation to Baker Pass; spectacular wild flowers. 2+58 up. #22 7-29-10 W/ Brent via Bowman Fork. Wildflowers in vast profusion. #23 9-7-10 Part of Mill B North Raymond, Gobblers, Raymond trio w/ Brent, Dave and JP Lewis. #24 12-7-10 W/Dave. Via Bowman Fork on microspikes and snowshoes (bagged Mt. Raymond 1st). Winter route down. Beautiful conditions in fine snow. #25 3-15-11 W/ Dave & John Lewis. Bowman Fork snow route. Tons of the white stuff. Windy on the summit ridge - just like winter. :) #26 7-19-11 W/ Dave & Brent via Butler Fork. Did Raymond first. #27 10-1-11 W/ Brent via Bowman Fork. Gorgeous aspen colors. #28 2-9-12 Another two-fer, this one a winter slog. Rotten snow conditions about 50% of the time. Still made it & bagged Raymond, too, all in snowshoes. #29 4-14-12 On a snowy spring day, direct to the summit from the west (sehr steil!). Mit Sonderperson. #30 7-24-12 Showery a.m. climb on rain-slickened trail. Trotzdem schoen. #31 7-28-12 Solo to summit. From Bowman Fork (canyon road). 2+12 to summit-whew!-but not PB. #32 7-31-12 W/ Brent & Anne. Then to Raymond. 2+40 up. #33 10-30-12 Lotsa new snow; ice on lower trail; w/ Brent. 3+55 up,2+57 down. #34 2-2-13 Lotsa trailbreaking via Bowman Fork and an alternate winter route. Sonnenschein u. S.person. #35 & #36 2-5-13 Using the winter snow route and subsequent approach along the north ridge I hit Gobblers twice whilst sandwiching Mt. Raymond in between via Baker Pass. Twas a long day in snowshoes: nine hours from the Bowman Fork/Terraces parking spot on the Millcreek Canyon road. #37 3-9-13 Via Butler Fork mityz along giant drifts on the approach from Baker Pass. #38 7-6-13 From Mill B North TH over Mt. Raymond and to Gobblers and took Mill A Basin return to TH. Wildflowers blooming amok! #39 8-6-13 W/ Brent from Bowman Fk w/ Mt. Raymond 1st. #40 10-10-13 W/ Anne, Bowman Fk, birthday hike of sorts, some snow and lt rain. Beautiful fall colors accented with the snow. #41 3-27-14 Solo. Moderate snow, tough trail breaking & 20-25 mph winds made for an interesting winter route 3+49 climb. But just following a good example... #42 4-1-14 No April Fool's Joke: via Bowman Fork in ss the entire way, heavy trail breaking and once again unrelenting SW winds. #43 6-3-14 w/B. Bowman Fork, up in 2+40. IVD mit jedem Schritt! #44 6-24-14 w/B. Bowman Fork, did after Raymond while B. waited. IVD tons.

Hiked via Mill B. Had a grand time hiking over large mounds of snow not yet melted (Texans are easily amused.)

Great route up Alexander Basin, very scenic this time of year, probably the preferred summer route. Shady most of the way and northeast facing

Did this hike via Bowman fork in Millcreek. What a great trail! Even on a Saturday morning I saw only one other hiker the entire trip. Gobblers Knob is a great, easy summit... However, I prefer it's neighbor, Mount Raymond, because it is more fun to climb.

One of the finest hikes in the Wasatch. First climbed in 1963 and never disappointed during the many times since.
