View Full Version : Trip Report Ben Lomond TR

Hiked Ben Lomond from North Ogden Divide Sunday. Good weather and nice trail going in. Some snow on the east side of the ridge going up. A little more snow after crossing over to the west side. Generally good trail since it was frozen to Bailey Springs. The snow was deeper on the summit cone-in places nearly knee deep. Coming out much of the trail was muddy and sloppy due to melting snow but still a great hike. I expect this weekend the trail will be pretty much dry and in great shape with the week of drying although I would expect to find snow on the NE facing side of the summit cone. For those who have never taken this hike I think it has some of the best views in the area. The round trip is over 16 miles but the trail is well maintained and at a very manageable grade for hiking especially below Bailey Springs. Still no digital camera for photos-next year!
