hike - willard peak & ben lomond via willard basin near ogden - October 30, 2021

We plan to bag Willard Peak (9763 ft) and Ben Lomond (9712 ft) from Willard Basin near Ogden, weather, conditions and situation permitting. Willard Peak is the highest peak in Weber County. Ben Lomond is one of the well-known peaks in the Northern Wasatch. There is a trail all the way, except the very last part to Willard Peak. Please bring 10 Es as well as micro-spikes (if there is snow). If the road conditions are not good and we start below Willard Basin, we may make Willard Peak only. If the road is in wet/snow conditions, we may take a different route which is longer than the Willard Basin route. I have hiked to Ben Lomond, but not to Willard Peak. Please email before Friday, 6 pm, Oct 29, for the meeting place and time. Registration is required. Registration priority will be given to WMC members. Registrants will receive more detailed info. Limit 8. COVID-19 protocols will apply.
