I completed this hike via Bowman Fork Trail, adding an extra .5 mile, but I felt it was important to give advice on the final accent to the peak. Trail was amazing!

When you are at the intersection (turn left for Gobblers Knob or right for Mt. Raymond), you will turn right. After going up roughly .3 miles, it will seem as though the trail ends. There will be a steep drop off/cliff to your right and a large left-sloping rock face in front of you. You need to scramble up the ridge of this rock face (30 yards or so) and then you will find the trail. Took me a while to figure it out so I hope this helps.
