Hiked from the North Ogden divide. Did Ben Lomond then Willard. I also saw a lot of mountain goats. Didn't start until noon so I was hiking the last hour in the dark.

A long day at 21+ miles but well worth it. Should have read Moogie737's post before we went - wasted a lot of time, backtracking and effort getting to Willard from Ben Lomond!

A long day from North Ogden Divide, Ben Lomond and then Willard.
My wife...aka Punchline....and I finished the day with over 20 miles on our feet. Got to like the huge rock crevasse on Willard. Also watched about 30+ mountain goats for a while.

Make sure you take the road slow, but it's cleared all the way to the top.

The road up from Mantua is in terrible condition and req'd. ~ 45 min. to cover the 7 miles. I parked ~ 1 mile below the Willard Basin saddle and first hiked to Inspiration Point. This is a relatively easy hike along the road that also passes by Willard Basin campground. It's a good alternative if you want to include this peak and also want another route to the Skyline trai. However, as of 7/1 there were still several trees across the road and frequent snow to cross. From Inspiration Point the Skyline trail is relatively flat to Ben Lomond Peak except for the final few hundred yards. Going this way from Inspiration Point be sure to take the left route at the first fork. Whether you hike to Willard Basin Peak on the way to or from Ben Lomond I think you'll need to routefind from the Skyline trail to the WB peak as I looked and couldn't find any existing route. There also were several mountain goats below and south of the Ben Lomond peak.

Drove up the road from Mantua and hiked about the last mile. Great views from up there. The lake was completely full and Pilot Peak in NV was visible.

Started at Cutler Flats but evidently took some wrong turns....Bicentennial Trail then to a dead end and after some backtracking was sure I found it. Only to have a "trail" peter in to obscurity pretty fast. Ran into some bow hunters that told me I could not get up from this basin, didn't stop me though I bushwaked for a couple miles and eventually came out on the ridge east of inspiration point....frustrating to know people drove up there. After an undulating ridge that added several hundred feet of elevation change I made it to Willard, not the first peak I was planning on going to. Took less than 4 hours the "direct way though. Ran over to Ben Lomond and down on what I thought was the Cutler Fork trail only to be dumped on a road next to a pavilion with a green shamrock on it, followed a bike path down to the river and figured this was an earlier part of the first wrong turn I had made. Still a foot path led downstream only to disappear also. Passed some voraciously destructive beavers and 2 bull moose before stumbling into Cutler Flats. Whole trip even with 1 mile added for wrong turns only took 7 hours and I made it a loop instead of there and back. There are definitely easier ways up this peak though.

Going up the heinously constructed Ben Lomond trail was not an option for Willard, so we drove to Inspiration Point. It was great to see the mountain goats with great views all around.

Managed to get my Maxima about 3 miles up the dirt road from Mantua, then biked up to Willard Basin. Stashed the bike in the trees and climbed Willard Peak, then over to Ben Lomond and back. Total distance just over 20 miles, took about 7.5 hours round trip. The bike ride down from the Basin was worth the effort to take it up earlier in the day.

Took the easy route up the road. My son Maverick (2) hiked the trail a bit but soon wanted a free ride. Great views and traverse over to Ben Lomand from the summit. Pics and map at http://www.willhiteweb.com/utah_climbing/willard/ben_lomand_peak_094.htm

Went with the easy 4x4 dirt road up to Inspiration point (Willard Basin). Easy hike. Spent most of the time trying to get close ups of the mtn goats then at the top. Great weather.

I was working up around willard peak, monitoring the goat habitat for the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources. So, after work I hiked to the top of Willard peak. It took hardly any time from where I was working to get to the top. I saw around a hundred goats that day.

Hiked from the North Ogden Trailhead up to Ben Lomond Peak and over to Willard Peak in just under 8 hours. Quite a lovely day and saw a few goats and a badger.

Drove up on Independence day to see the F-16 flying around for the parades. I made it to the top in time, heard the enigines roar but didn't see any sweet jets, maybe next year. Drove up to Willard Basin, really crappy road.

This was the final UT COHP for me and my wife. It's a great peak that we could see from our bedroom window. A fitting end to a long adventure!

I car camped at the trailhead in Willard Basin and then climbed Willard Pk the next morning. I saw a nice group of mountain goats near the summit.

Nice hike but I hated the road in from Mantua. Glad I did it on a weekday with very little traffic to deal with. If you drive the road to Willard Basin, you'll understand what I'm talking about.

#1 7-22-05 On a hot summer day, which we had, it was a long exercise in determination. Several snow fields made glissading on the return trip fun. Don't follow the obvious trail to the north and west of Willard Peak or you will add needless time and distance - we did! Instead angle northwest up the ridge line when it looks appropriate and route find to the broad lumpy top which doubles as a summit. Ben Lomond is much more picturesque than Willard. It took us 8+30 roundtrip. Was with my son, Kimball. #2 8-30-14 Solo, after hitting B.L. and taking in the subpeak north where trucks park. Windy the entire day but cool. Many, many mountain goats down below the trail west of the summit block. IVD

This is an easy hike from Willard Basin. We didn't get to the real trailhead because there was still a lot of snow on the ground and the road was muddy. It was still a nice hike along the ridge to the top.
