"Ben Lomond has the longest, most gentle gradient of any summit trail in the Wasatch. Along the way you’re treated to continuous and commanding views in all directions, with a diverse range of vegetation and wildlife." Read more
"These are major Wasatch summits, with often incredible skiing and amazing views. The avalanche danger is potentially high but can be mitigated, especially by enjoying the lower terrain southeast of Ben Lomond. Cross-country skiing is excellent on the numerous summer roads of North Fork Park." Read more
"Ben Lomond Peak is the best-known peak in the Ogden area. Named after a mountain in the Scottish Highlands, it also holds the distinction of being the logo for Paramount Pictures. It is said that William W. Hodkinson, the founder of Paramount and a native of the Ogden area, drew the image in a likeness of his home mountains. Loved by trail runners, mountain bikers, hikers, and riders on horseback, this 9,712foot peak has four separate trailheads. The incredible views of Ogden, the Wasatch Range, Willard Bay, the Great Salt Lake, and surrounding peaks are just part of the allure." Read more

Finally did this hike after living in Ogden for most of my life. I went up from the North Ogden Divide trailhead. Long hike, but it is really pretty flat most of the way; even the switchbacks are pretty mild. Beautiful walk along the ridgeline for several miles. This won't be my last time up this trail.

This amazing hike is not for the weak of heart. It is a fairly strenuous climb, particularly the first and last ascents. Be prepared to spend the whole day, and be sure to take plenty of water, there are no streams or ponds along the way. The views along the trail are beautiful; wild flowers and rugged pine trees line the trail along the way. From the top it is possible to see Logan, Huntsville, Brigham, and Ogden. Don't forget your camera.
