Lots of snow fields made for a fun descent. The route wasn't as steep as I expected. There are great views of Ben Lomond and Willard on the approach. Fun hike. GPS reported 14.3 miles round trip.

Brent and I bagged this one and Ben Lomond from North Ogden Canyon. This ended up being a long day but was a beautiful hike with views to die for. Brent put in the boot pack for me from Ben Lomond to Willard. No one had ventured over there that day.

With Jun32 and Jennilyn. We ran about 95% to the top of BL and then power hiked the final push. The sun was just coming out and the views were outstanding. We also ran over and tagged Willard as well and then went back the way we came. We saw 3 Mt. goats and 3 moose up close. What a fantastic route. Total time round trip was 4:30ish.

a bit of a zoo up in Willard Basin. lots of people, ATVs, hunters, bikers. The actual summit was somewhat rocky. The road up to Willard Basin is in pretty good shape- just narrow and steep in places. Good fall color and of course cool views out over Great Salt Lake.

7/19/2013 Started at the Skyline trail in North Ogden. From Ben Lomond I continued onto Willard Peak. I lost count of the number of mountain goats I saw between the two peaks. They were all over the place. Returned back to Ben Lomond and made the very slight detour to Chilly Peak on the way down. Great hike.

Drove up to Inspiration point, 9,422 ft, then wandered over to Willard Peak, 9,764 ft, and continued on to Ben Lomond, 9,712 ft. Ascending Willard I spoted one goat, coming down we spoted a herd of 12, which ran away, but when we reached them again there was at least 25 or 30 of them. I have never seen that many mountian goats at once. On the drive out we saw three mooses in Perry Reservoir.

The drive to Inspiration Point takes some time, but when I consider the other hiking routes it's a great "short cut" to the peak. Saw some mountain goats after starting our way down from the peak. Great views.

Easy drive to Inspiration Point - good road, high clearance a must, 4WD not required. I read that the road was very rough but it was not. Ridge climbed from Inspiration toward Willard Peak. Routefind from the NW to top. Deep crevasse on Willard! Continued on to Ben Lomond for lunch. Took the lower trail West and below Willard back to IP. Saw several Mt Goats. My first County High Point.

Date Climbed: Jul 16, 2011
Scrambled up from Willard Basin to the north, despite the lingering record snowfall from winter/spring. A snow drift 10 feet deep and 75 yards across still covered the road 1/4 mile from the Willard Basin campground, so I started from there. Kicked little steps in the snow (I love heavy snow years) up the headwall above the pond to the ridge, then finished the easy walk through the rocks and vegetation to the summit. Great view in every direction, beautiful summer day, absolutely calm on the summit. Glissade down the cirque headwall back to the pond was a blast. What a beautiful way to spend a Saturday morning.

Rocky Alps

Between Ben Lomond and Willard Peak we saw about 50 mountain goats, and by following a few of them off the trail we made it straight to the summit. The views down over Willard Bay to the west were awesome. See "Skyline Trail" trip report for details.

July 2011 -- Climbed via the Skyline trail and Ben Lomond. We saw a lot of mountain goats, and we followed them to the summit.

July 20, 2013 -- Drove to Inspiration Point and then hiked to the summit with my dad and brother. Once again, there were a lot of mountain goats. Afterwards I mountain biked down.

Started at the North Ogden Trailhead. Between the 20 miles traveled and the snow that had accumulated over Ben Lomand and Willard, I was tired by the time I reached the car.

Camped in Willard Basin after climbing Bull Mountain. Drove to Inspiration Point and ridge climbed to Willard. After Willard we climbed the easy ridge to Ben Lomond. We saw 100's of mountain goats on the west face of Willard and Ben Lomond

Topped out from the divide with my 12 year old son, wife, and brother in law. Still some snow and we had to negotiate some sketchy snowfield traverses right below the summit. Also had to do some route finding, but managed. Huge rattlesnake right below the summit. It was very slow and lathargic and hardly seemed to care that we were there. Saw a goat as we were topping Willard, but it managed to sneak off without anyone seeing where it went. We were a little slow and took just under 12 hours round trip summiting BL twice (coming up, and on the return)and took a long lunch break on Willard. First county highpoint in my home county.

GO UTES!!!

Amazing rocks up top. But I definitely wasn't fist-punching the air when I reached this summit like I was when I did AF Twins 4 days ago. But check it off the list. Combo'd it up with Ben Lomond. Ben Lomond is the celebrity of the ridge, and Willard seems to be the rough and rugged forgotten step brother. I didn't even find a registry on top of Willard.
