Hike up Butler Fork in Big Cottonwood Canyon to saddle for a mod hike, go on to hike Mt. Raymond and/or Gobblers Knob for a msd hike. Enjoy late wildflowers, perhaps spot a moose or mule deer. Hiking to the saddle and back at a mod pace takes about 3-4 hours. Hiking on to Gobblers Knob and back at a mod pace takes about 5-6 hours. Adding Mt. Raymond, which has a bit of exposed scrambling, takes about 7-8 hours. Adjustable length trekking poles are a good idea. Bring layers, plenty of water, snacks.
