Ben Lomond, just north of Ogden, Utah, is a peak in the northern portion of the Wasatch Mountains A popular trail passes over its summit elevation 9,716 feet 2,961 m, accessible from four different trailheads to the north, south, and east

It is often referred to by locals as Ben Lomond Peak, Mt Ben Lomond, and Ben Lomond Mountain The USGS has it labeled as Ben Lomond on maps3

Ben Lomond stands out along the Wasatch Front because the mountain range appears to run east and west along the Wasatch Range, while most mountains appear to run south and north Two miles northwest of Ben Lomond is Willard Peak, with an elevation of 9,764 feet 2,976 m Northwest of Willard Peak is Inspiration Point A dirt road travels 14 miles 23 km from Mantua, Utah to Inspiration Point The road is usually not passable until July due to deep snow that resists melting due to the area's northern exposure Atop Inspiration Point on a clear day, one can see Salt Lake City to the south, Willard Bay and the Great Salt Lake to the west, and the city of Logan, Utah to the northeast

From Inspiration Peak one can hike or bike to the summit of Ben Lomond, and then continue east to a trailhead on North Ogden Pass The trail is listed as one of the top mountain bike rides in Utah The distance from the North Ogden trailhead to the summit of Ben Lomond is approximately 9 miles 14 km

Ben Lomond was named after the mountain Ben Lomond in the Scottish Highlands4 Mary Wilson Montgomery an early settler thought the mountain range resembled the Munro5

According to some sources, the Paramount Pictures logo, known as Majestic Mountain, was modeled after Ben Lomond It is said that William W Hodkinson, the founder of Paramount and a native of the Ogden area, initially drew the image on a napkin during a meeting in 191467
