Admittedly, neighboring Gobblers Knob is 5 feet higher in elevation and has a more interesting name, but Mount Raymond is the more interesting hike. Groves of aspen blanket the lower trail, and a variety of conifers clings to a rocky knife-ridge leading to the summit. You’ll have great views in all directions.

Made this hike using snowshoes the morning after a new snowfall and found it to be a lovely trip. We only encountered a few cross country skiers on the first part of the hike, but saw no one else for the rest of our trip. Even with the deep snow, the hike was not all that challenging and you will definitely see some beautiful scenery. We continued off the trail for a while and logged about 4 miles total. Worth the visit.

Take the kids and grandma and grandpa on this one. The falls are more dynamic in spring.
