Evening hike. Beautiful late day views from the top. The Cottonwood Ridge looked amazing.
Trail run up to Mt Raymond - hit this on the way down
Tagged on the way to Gobblers Knob, good views.
Ran from the Mill D North Fork trailhead, past Dog Lake, took the trail to Mill A Basin, tagged the top of Circle All Peak, then ran down to my car at the Butler Fork trailhead. 8.2 miles total.
Skinned up the NW aspect after skiing down from Mount Raymond
Tagged on the way up to Gobbler's Knob. Lush greenery with aspen and an excellent view of Big Cottonwood Canyon.
Not to mention that Butler Fork has some very lush, pretty forest and meadow.
Kimberly and I caught this one on the way to Raymond and Gobblers

Great pit stop on the way to Mt. Raymond.
This was just a short diversion from the main trail and well worth it. The name fits.
Hiked Circle All Peak, Mount Raymond, and Gobblers Knob from Butler Fork with David. The aspen groves on the way up were some of the nicest I've seen, and the views at each summit were great as well (especially looking south towards Cottonwood Ridge). Mount Raymond was probably the coolest of the three (a couple easy short scrambling moves needed near the top). See "Everybody Loves Raymond" trip report for details.
Came back on 9/21/19 for a family hike, where our 2-year old Easton decided he wanted out of the backpack and hiked about half of the way up and down Circle-All Peak by himself.
6/9/2013 After a successful completion of Wildcat Ridge (Mt. Olympus to Mt. Raymond) I still had enough energy to run up the short distance to Circle All Peak on the way down Butler Fork.
Stopped for a breather and to enjoy the view on the way up Raymond. Loved the view but I'm biased - love Cottonwood Ridge.
On the same day as Raymond, you will pass this anyway on one common route, so grab it too. A nice view and if you are pooped, stop here.
Good workout on snowshoes!
I've done more often than not on snowshoes.
I guess it's only been once as of this post, but as it's a popular ski tour and easy to wind up on top of without necessarily intending to (which is how I got there the once - ski partner didn't like the weather on Gobbler's which was the plan), I'm sure I'll be there again. Yes, good views from there.
On the way back from Gobblers under an ominous set of gray thunderclouds that did nothing but rumble.
Climbed to the top probably 20-30 times in winter to ski tour the trees on the north and northeast side. Great option for a quick tour or when avy danger is high. Fantastic views for a low peak.
