Mount Fremont Lookout 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 a fork in the Sourdough Ridge Nature Trail. Turn left (northwest) 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 also looms magnificent from Sourdough Ridge."
