Fremont Gorge Overlook Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Are you staying in Fruita Campground and looking for an invigorating early morning walk? Are you searching for a hike that will give you some energizing elevation gain, the restorative sound of rushing water, and inspirational views? The Fremont River Trail is accessible from the Fruita picnic area, the Gifford Homestead, and the Fruita Campground and may be the wake-up call for which you’re looking, or it may be the perfect introductory hike if you’re staying in the park a couple days or more.

If you’re an early morning birder or photographer, or if you want to walk a less-traveled path that is still in the heart of the park, just a few minutes by car from the visitor center, then this is your hike."

"Trails on the campground side of the Fremont River in the Fruita District see a lot of traffic. Not so much on the other side of the river. The Fremont Gorge Overlook Trail is often overlooked when visitors plan their activities in the park."
