“A lovely hike to an old firetower atop Mount Fremont.”— Brian Smith
At mile 3.3, the Huckleberry Creek Trail will branch off to the right (North) and descend steeply from the ridge. Stay straight to keep on the Sourdough Ridge Trail. The final stretch of the trail descends and contours to a terminus at Frozen Lake.
The trail to Mt. Fremont traverses the west 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.
