Mount Fremont Lookout Trail

Hiking Trail

Details
5.68 mi
1,159 ft
Take in views of Mount Rainier from the deck of a historic fire lookout. The Mount Fremont Lookout Trail takes you from the Sunrise Visitor Center to the Mount Fremont Fire Lookout, which was built by the National Park Service in 1933. The hike begins on the Sourdough Ridge trail. After about a mile and a half, you’ll turn right onto the Mount Fremont Lookout Trail and make your way to the lookout. The inside of the building is closed to the public, but it may be possible to climb the steps up to the deck. This trail follows an out and back route. Because of the high elevation and steep grades, most hikers consider this a hard trail. This is one of the most popular hikes for Strava members visiting Mount Rainier National Park.
