Description

Access this trail via the Sourdough Ridge Trail from the Sunrise Visitor Center. The trail to Mt. Fremont traverses the western side of a rocky ridge for 1.4 miles to a fire lookout built in the 1930s.

Beginning with a slight descent and flat section, the trail quickly transitions to a steep ascent to gain the ridge. Once atop the ridge the trail traverses to the north and eventually terminates at the Mt. Fremont fire lookout. On a clear day hikers can enjoy superb views of Mount Rainier, the Cascades, and the Olympic Mountains. North of the lookout lies the spectacular meadows of Grand Park.

The trail leading out to the Mount Fremont Lookout.   It's rocky, but fairly easy.  You'll notice it is exposed, so make sure you bring sunscreen.
