All Day Hike: Ben Lomond Peak

June 8 @ 7:30 am - 4:00 pm

Questions?: Javis @[masked]

UPDATE: With the recent snow fall at the higher elevations I am not expecting us to summit the peak, I do however think we’ll make it to the base/saddle before the final climb up. We’ll still have good views and have fun. Bring cleats and warm clothing if needed.

Join us as we take the 15 mile round trip trek up about 3,600 feet to the peak. Plan to meet at the North Fork Park trailhead (GPS coordinates:[masked], [masked]) at 7:30am, from there we will split up cars and carpool to the North Ogden Divide trailhead. So we’ll be going up via the divide and down to NF park.

Bring a lot of water (2L/person plus extra water bottles) and plenty of carb-rich foods for this strenuous hike. Cleats may be needed since there will likely be snow on the north face of the peak, or you can also pack a heavy duty garbage bag for some makeshift sledding down if the snow is just right. If there’s too much snow we will go as far as we safely can.

Hiking level is difficult to extremely difficult, your legs and feet WILL hurt after this 6-7 hour hike, so be prepared with the proper water, food, and equipment (shoes, trekking poles, hat, sunscreen, etc). The trail is rocky so come prepared with a good pair of hiking boots.

We’ll end at the North Fork Park and shuttle people back to their cars at the divide. Those interested can cool off with a snack at Zeppes after this.

While technically not in Davis County, the peak offers spectacular views of Weber, Cache, Box Elder, and Davis counties and on a clear day you should be able to see into Idaho. I’ve hiked this in June, July, August, and September. It’s best to hike in June, it’s still green and the wildflowers are beautiful along the ridge.
