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.

Feels like cheating  Sucess!

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.

First CoHP  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. 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.

Snowy northern slopes  Sucess!

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.

Skyline Trail via Ben Lomond  Sucess!

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.
