Notes: This trail ascent is mild and gradual. It is under cover of old growth trees with an open understory, so it probably stays relatively cool. After climbing out of Bowman Fork and up to the ridgeline, the views open up in nearly all directions. Closeups of Gobblers Knob, Mt Raymond and Thaynes Peak make it hard to keep your eyes on the trail. 8
