This was a fun little hike to the summit of Willard Peak (elevation of 9,763 feet and prominence of 3,243 feet), near Ogden UT.

I started and ended the hike at the Willard Basin Campground. The drive to the TH was quite an adventure -- it took me an hour and 20 minutes to drive 10 miles. The road is really more suited to ATV's, and that is all that I saw out there. You need high clearance in a few places, and there are some rocky sections. The biggest issue was that the road was narrow in many places, and I'm talking REALLY narrow. There were a couple of white knuckle sections that I was hoping and praying that I would not meet another vehicle.

The hike was fun and scenic. The trail was nice, and there was some rock scrambling near the summit. I had read reports that there was class 3 and maybe class 4 climbing near the summit. However, I would characterize the worst of it as class 1+ or maybe class 2-.

Synopsis
I will rate the hike as a 5 star, but the drive to the TH gets a big fat zero.

The foliage wasn't the greatest that I have ever seen, but it had its moments.
