Description

Mount Raymond is a 7.3 mile long hike with a gain of over 3,000 feet in elevation.

It starts at the Butler Fork trailhead and works it's way through some lovely aspen groves as it gains a fair amount of elevation.

Once it gains the ridge it then traverses into the upper valley where you'll be able to view the peak.

The long and easy contouring ends in the saddle between Mount Raymond and Gobblers Knob.

From here the summit ridge is gained and followed all the way to the top with a few rock bands to be scrambled up before reaching the top.

The summit views are some of the most all encompassing that the Wasatch has to offer.
