Mount Fremont Lookout Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This hike makes a short ascent to a fire lookout on Mount Fremont that towers over the north side of the park. The lookout affords great views of Mount Rainier, Skyscraper Mountain, Grand Park, and Sourdough Ridge. Walk up the paved path to the right (east) of the restrooms until you see a dirt trail on your right (north). Get on that trail and travel north until you come to the junction with the Sourdough Ridge Nature Trail.

Turn left (northwest) onto the nature trail, and walk 0.2 mile to the Sourdough Ridge Trail. Turn left (west) onto the
Sourdough Ridge Trail. While you are walking along this trail, you can see the North Cascades to your right. Mount Rainier looms magnificent from Sourdough Ridge.After 0.3 mile you
pass the Huckleberry Creek Trail on your right, heading northwest."

The weather was perfect at Sunrise making the visibility absolutely unreal! The hike to Fremont Lookout is a well maintained and scenic trail. Workers were restoring the Lookout building from the bottom up. Grand Park was showing its beauty and there were flowers along the trail to enjoy. It was an excellent easy hike. Sigree
