One of the most prolific peak along the wasatch front and the hike and trail were extraordinary. It's also a great trail run for the die hards.

Hot day but not too bad with an early start. Hit Ben Lomond and then headed over to Willard Peak and then back. It's long, but that trail isn't very steep at all, so it's fast moving.

Climbed it from the Skyline trail. It was a nice hike up and it didn't seem to be as long as I thought it would be be, propably 5 hours total to the top. The summit is awesome and is quite prominent.
Eventhough it was nice getting up, it was the worst descent of my life. My feet hurt and I kept rolling my ankle, argghhh! I will not do this trail again, I would take the backside instead.

I climb this every spring from North Fork. I meet people who "cheat" from Skyline drive.

This is a long, but very gradual hike. We did this in mid-June and the final trail to the summit was still completely buried in the snow. We got off the trail and did a scramble to the summit, which was quite fun. Outstanding hike!

Climbed in Summer and Winter of 2005. Abundant wildflowers, dragonflies and butterflies in summer, though if you're looking for solitude, winter is best. Unfortunately, there is a tremendous amount of erosion, especially along the last portion of the trail, caused in large part due to motorcycles and horses being allowed on the trail. The noise and smell of motorcycles, as well as having to incessantly dodge horse crap definitely takes away from this mountain's potential serenity.

Great hike this is in my back yard and have always wanted to go to visit old Ben.

It took us 9 hours round trip, but we wasted a lot of time about half way there to eat lunch and take in the views.

Great hike, this time I took a friend Von ( 2nd backpacking trip for him). We got a late start I guess got up to about the 4 mile point where you can clearly see the peak. There is a nice little campsite that we stayed at. Setup camp and then took off for the peak. I was trying to tell Von it was just as far as we had just hiked. I think looks were deceiving to him. Anyway I got up to the peak about half an hour before Von. Just had to get the pace on, we had radio's if anything went wrong. He got up there right about the time the sun was completely down and it was almost dark. We took some pics, signed the log book and headed back to camp. Got back to camp at about 9:45 pm, cooked some food and listened to some "Crazy Talk" on the AM station. This is a great hike with an excellent view. Plan on doing it the day after christmas. This time I'm going to hit Willard peak as well. Check out my site if you want.. I put a little story about some of the stuff I've done in the past few months. http://spaces.msn.com/members/danthaman/

Definitely a beautiful view from the top. The trail was nice and not very steep, I'm sure it will be a lot better when all the snow melts. I just step kicked up the face when I lost the trail, but you can go up the ridge to the south around the snow. It took me 3.5 hrs to reach the summit from the bottom and 2 hrs coming back down. Next time I plan on hitting willard peak as well. I would recommend this trail for anyone.

What an amazing trail! My dogs had fun chasing the mountain grouse all over. Saw A large male ans small juvenile mountain goat on the summit. They were kind enough to let me take a few great photos. Then saw a mountain lion up on a cliff on the way out. Got some nice shots of it as well. Never seen a cat in the wild!! Lots of snow still. Beautiful summit!

Ben Lomond is a great mountain. It is always a good workout because of the length of the trail. I have seen a lot of moose on the mountain. I don’t remember details about when I first hiked these routes. North Fork Park and Cutler Basin in Fall of 1995. North Ogden Pass in June and September of 1996. Willard Basin in July 1997. I have climbed Ben Lomond many times since then.

Did Skyline trail with Grampa when I was 8 or 9. Lots of dirt (motor) bike riders on the trail back then.

My curiosity got the better part of me, so my wife and I schlepped up the heinous trail. It seemed we gained 500 ft in 5 miles. It is a mountain bike trail and not steep with way too many switchbacks.



Chalk this one up to "I've hiked it and don't have any desire to repeat it!"

Big Mountain! Trail isn't very steep no matter what route is taken, but plan on a long day. You'll feel it in the morning! Popular trail, so there's always good stories to swap and people to meet.

Several ascents. Skyline trail and North Fork Park trails are long, but gentle grades make for easy hiking. Willard Basin route is short and sweet if you have a high clearance vehicle. Outstanding views.
