Gobbler’s Knob – Wasatch Mountains

June 25, 2006 at 7:38 pm Leave a comment

For Paul ‘s birthday we completed an ascent of Gobbler’s Knob (10,246 ft.), which lies between Millcreek and Big Cottonwood Canyons. The approach was ridiculous, somewhere between 8-9 miles. We started in Neff’s Canyon, hiking past the meadow and turning up to the overlook into Big Cottonwood Canyon. From here we hiked cross country to the top of Porter’s Fork and traversed around Mount Raymond. We had non-stop views of the snow-covered ridge between Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons. A trip through Mill A Basin brought us to Baker Pass and the ascent of Gobbler’s Knob. Nils brought Cheeseburgers for all – which were assembled on the summit. All enjoyed a bleu Cheesburger with pickles. The descent from the summit involved bushwacking to the Bowman Fork trail with the hike ending at the Terraces Picnic area. Highlights of the trip included great Cheeseburgers, views of Big Cottonwood Canyon from top to bottom, and fields of Paintbrush, Bluebells, and Wallflowers. We were especially glad to have Ed along for his first Cheeseburger summit. Ed, John, Nils, Paul.
