nice!  Sucess!

with Wasatch Mountain Club group, from campground in Willard Basin. Thanks to Andy for transporting us that far on a snowy/muddy road. Also followed ridge to Inspiration Point of Willard Mountain. Probably the best overall views of the Great Salt Lake that I have ever seen.

Beautiful Day  Sucess!

The drive up to Inspiration Point was beautiful although a little rough. The hike up to Willard Peak was a nice ridge walk for the most part. There are fantastic views from the top. I also hiked over to Ben Lomond from Willard Peak which was nice and relaxing with awesome views the whole way. Overall, the day was the perfect mix of relaxing and challenging.

Via North Ogden Divide  Sucess!

Climbed via North Ogden Divide via Ben Lomond with Kaden Robinson and his friend Parker. Still a ton of snow on the east facing aspects which made for a couple of sketchy snow field traverses and some interesting route finding. Fun and very long day!

Willard Peak and Ben Lomond via Willard Basin  Sucess!

Summited Willard Peak via Willard Basin to attain my 10th Utah county high point. I combined Ben Lomond with this trip.

No trail to the top

Tried to make it from North Ogden divide. Wasted time walking the trail all the way around (read another trip report to tackle from the west). I didn't realize the altitude loss from Ben Lomand & having to regain on slippery footing. Ran out of time (already 10 miles out) and didn't make the tippy top but got pretty far up before bailing. Would never try doing it from North Ogden divide again - too much wasted mileage and altitude loss after B Lomand.

Mountain Goats and Mapping  Sucess!

Climbed Willard while mapping weeds. Found some dyer's woad on th email ridge up to the summit. Beautiful views and saw some mountain Goats with their lambs just below the summit. Started hiking at the gate a mile or so down road from the Willard Basin trail.

Craggy  Sucess!

This mountain was very short and we were planning on Doing Ben too. Anyway, the goats on top were nice and the rock was lovely. The smokey views made it so you couldn't see much. Anyway, driving up most of the peak made it easy.

Pretty pile of rocks!  Sucess!

A friend had to get back home, so we didn't have time to traipse across the ridge to Benny. Sad panda!

via Cutler Basin trail  Sucess!

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.

Two in One We are thrilled  Sucess!

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.

And Ben Lomond

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.

willard basin  Sucess!

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.

Via Ben Lomond  Sucess!

10/12/2014 Skyline Trail to Ben Lomond and on to Willard.
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.

Lots of Mountain Goats  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.
