I wanted to test myself against one of the more difficult 'medium' hikes from our guide, 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles: Salt Lake City, so I chose the one with the most elevation gain, over 3000 feet in about 2 miles. The destination was Gobbler's Knob, which we fell short of. We made it to the top of the basin and about half-way up the rocks to the saddle, just shy of the final push to the knob, before a combination of fatigue and my vertigo set in.
This trail was the steepest I've yet been on, and it wasn't just me, almost all of the hikers we passed on the trail had something to say about that. It passes through some beautiful forest; I just wish we'd come a little later in the year to catch more of the amazing wildflowers. As it was, we saw saw scads of bluebells and a rare white columbine.
I have mixed feelings about this hike, as I would have liked to make it to my destination. Still, you have to know your limits.
For more info on the last jaunt of the hike, here are some guys that went to the top.
