I only went from Inspiration Point (Willard Mountain) to Willard Peak. You can approach the peak from two different directions. The first route is the trail that goes up to the ridge and then bends to the left, following the ridge up to the peak. There is some scrambling, and the last stretch you have dropoffs on either side. It is the shorter route.

If you summit from the Ben Lomond side, it is quite a bit easier, but there doesn't appear to be a trail for the last bit. From Inspiration Point, take the second closest trail to Willard Peak (the closest trail is the shortest route described above). The other two trails stay lower, and provide a direct route to Ben Lomond. Once you pass the peak, you can look up and see a couple grassy saddles. Cut up these until you get the ridge, and then turn back to the north for a gradual climb to the peak.

This trail or at least the general area offers fantastic view from the mountain ridge down on both sides. The road to Willard Basin Campground is rough, mainly used by ATVs and trucks. The trailhead is not marked so I don’t even know what trail we took. But the views were great.

Car Camping at its average. It was easy to get all 26 of our scouts and 7 leaders a place to sleep but the train came through at 2:00 am and the freeway is only a stones throw away...

It's fun to camp here once a year. The trail is fine, but there are always loads of mosquitoes so I don't use the trail often.

Camp here at least once a year. I try to go in the off season as to avoid the crowds. I have hiked all the trails this park has to offer and spent many hours reeling in fat catfish and yummy walleye. If you have a boat you will enjoy the wiper fishing.

Not really any trails to follow, this is mainly a large bird watching area. The kids, dog, and I did have fun in the tall grass and the amenities were very nice. We'll be coming back to camp.
