(6/20/2020) Was going to do an overnight hike to Ben Lomond from the N Ogden Canyon Rd but the road is closed from bottom of the west end. I saw vehicles going past the road closed signs but didn't want to risk it overnight. Google Maps showed the road being closed starting at Ben Lomond Trailhead going east, but the road closed signs were at the E 3100 N & N Mountain Rd. From the Road Signs to the trailhead is another 2.5 miles each way. Take a look at this article that shows the work being done on the road. https://www.standard.net/news/transportation/north-ogden-divide-to-get-1-98m-upgrade-closures-of-roadway-at-times-expected/article_38086d64-b56f-5d0d-9f0d-9538f3918b43.html Hope this helps anyone thinking of hiking in this area.

It’s a great fun hike. You can get to it from the back of the mountain as well in the north fork camp ground. It’s just a harder hike that adds a little more to the trail. It’s a lot easier from the canyon but it is closed. Totally recommend it

Beautiful hike with a great view of the valley. We made it most of the way by braving our way through several patches of snow. There was too much snow to find a practical way to the peak. But still worth it.

Went May 31, 2020 and the trail is great until it gets to the east side of the mountain. It's still snowy here and there with a lot of mud. Some dirt bikes also created a huge rut in the snowy/muddy section that's 6-8 inches deep in parts and goes for hundreds of feet at a time. Made MTBing pretty tricky. Otherwise the trail is dry and in great condition!

We got 3.5 miles in before the snow stopped us. The wildflowers were beautiful, and it was a very good hike! Can’t wait to complete it in a few weeks.

Lots of spring wildflowers are out, as well as the tent caterpillars. Still quite a bit of snow higher up. Went 4 miles before deciding to turn around and give it a shot later when the snow has melted.

It was a nice overcast day so the trail wasn’t too hot. Otherwise it would have been pretty hot. We only went 2 miles up the. Turned around so I don’t know about the rest of the trail but the first 2 miles has a lot of loose rocks, which makes it cumbersome. The incline wasn’t bad and it is beautiful!

Great trail! You’ll feel an awesome sense of accomplishment after completing it! We did it for our 21st wedding anniversary (Nov 5). We took our two doggies with us. We started early (7:45am) and the trail was fine. You hit stretches of snow after about 2 miles. No snowshoes required. The ground with no snow was frozen on the way up but very muddy on the way down. More snow at top (knee deep) but we followed tracks that were there from past hiker (Didn’t need snowshoes here either). It was a sunny and beautiful day. Trail was easy to follow.

The hike was beautiful. Amazing views from both sides. We were lucky enough to see goats at the very top. My watch tracked us about 8 miles to the top, a little further than what we thought. If you go up about 5 miles you would still have amazing views. Took us 4 hours to the top.

Lots of exposure and tons of motor bikes. Although a good workout, one time is enough for me. Better hikes with less annoyances all around. Also, pack plenty of water, no where no reload on entire hike

My favorite trail in the Ogden area. The climb is long and gradual and only really gets tough in the last 0.5 miles to the summit. Once you finish the switchback section at the start, the views really open up and is very scenic all the way to the top. Took me a bit over 2.5 hours round trip running most of the way.

Great views on either side! We saw about 20 mountain goats on the west side. Gradual ascent the entire way.

Thought I would try something a little different this year. Not a good idea. My son-in-law had never been up here so I thought why not take him on a full blown adventure. I wanted to hit Ben Lomond, Willard Peak, and then out to the Flag in Willard and try to make our though hike end up in Willard Canyon. Most of the day went smooth, but when it came to pick a path down into Willard Canyon, the brush was extremely thick this year and couldn't even really find a good game trail. Finally made it to the creek in Willard Canyon which quickly turn into a pretty sketchy slot. Hey it was and adventure and 16 exhausting mile later we were done and soaked to the bone.

Great trail with excellent views of Weber county and Ogden valley. We clocked 8.4 miles from North Ogden divide to the peak. (1.4 miles from the saddle to the peak.) Except for a few spots, the grade is mild and very manageable.

A big take always from this hike, bring more water than you think you’ll need. I ran out with a few miles left, not a good idea. If you start in the morning, you’ll be in direct sun for the rest of the day. Also, the roar of the motorbikes take away from the pristine environment. Still a very challenging long hike but very epic in its own way.

Constant breath-taking beauty, without it being a breath-stealing hike. The incline is very steady and continuous, but totally doable, even carrying on a conversation, but, it is VERY long! Carry plenty of water! I also strongly recommend a head-lamp or flashlight if doing the whole trip. One of the best "view hikes" ever!
