Gate was closed so we had to hike from the gate then up the trail from the basin. Skipped Inspiration Point.
Road was good all the way up to Inspiration Point. Lots of trucks, vans, and ATVs on the road.
Congratulations and a serious "THANK YOU" to the party responsible for building the road from Mantua up to Inspiration Point! That is a fantastic road and a lot of hard work went into it. I was able to park at Inspiration Point and easily head up the ridge to Willard, then on to Ben Lomond. Took the well groomed trail on the west of Willard back to my truck at Inspiration Point. Fantastic day because of a lot of hard work that somebody has put into the area. Thank you!
