North Ogden Divide

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.

Gentle and Pleasant  Sucess!

I remember this one fondly and need to get back. A long gentle approach should be good in any season, and I think this would make a good back country ski. Pack a lunch and plenty of water and make an easy day of it.

Long Day  Sucess!

The hike took about 6 hours in each direction. Snow shoed most of the way, switched to crampons on the final summit push. Freezing temps and lots of lots of snow!

Via Willard Basin  Sucess!

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. I can understand why "goat man" was hanging out in the area a few months ago.

No Goat Man  Sucess!

Solo from N Fork park. That night's evening news reported on the "Goat Man Sighting" on Ben Lomand. I did not see any goats; animals or humans with goat costumes. Great day, fantastic weather. Only saw one other hiker.

Inspiration Point to Ben  Sucess!

Drove to Inspiration Point and walked over to Willard Peak. Couldn't find a great route to the top, but made it, and then walked over to Ben Lomond, which was much easier to summit. Great views. First time on Willard and Ben.

Beautiful route for wildflowers  Sucess!

Hiked up from North Fork Park up to Ben Lomond. What a great hike for wildflowers. I would suggest going in June however.

double your pleasure  Sucess!

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. Daughter, Son, a friend and the dog ridge climbed from Inspiration toward Willard Peak. Continued on to Ben Lomond for lunch. Saw several Mt Goats. Signed the log. Took the lower trail below Willard back to IP. Saw a big Rattle Snake below Willard. About 5 miles round trip.

Skyline Trail  Sucess!

Hiked along the long, but scenic Skyline Trail from the North Ogden Divide Trailhead with my cousin David. The overall grade of the trail was very gradual, except for the last steep part where we had to bypass some lingering snow near the top. See "Skyline Trail" trip report for details.

Saw 20 goats near top!  Sucess!

Great weather day -- doesn't get any better. Saw 20 goats near the top, including 8 kids. Were lucky enough to see a mama grouse leading some baby grouses down the trail, also. We started at North Fork Park. Trail crews have been working hard; the trail is the best I've seen it EVER!

North Ogden Divide  Sucess!

Summited twice today. Once on the way to Willard Peak, and topped it out again on the way back. Great day, climbed with my wife and 12 year old son, brother in law, and some neighbors. Still a lot of snow on the east face which required lots of kick steps, but made for great glissading on the way down. Lots of goats. Found a "Rubber Boa" snake on the trail, and a huge rattler just below Willard. It was very sluggish and slow. I was surprised to see one that high. Great day! Just under 12 hours to Willard round trip with a long lunch break on Willard Peak.
