Once upon a time, the easiest access to Gobblers Knob was via the Westside Road in Mount Rainier National Park. Unfortunately, that road washed out so frequently that it was permanently closed to public traffic a few years ago, though the Park Service did provide shuttle bus service for a time. Following the massive damage done by the winter 2006 floods, though, the road likely will remain closed to all vehicle traffic in the future. So we come into the old lookout side atop Gobblers Knob from the west.
