Trail Description
The trailhead starts at 6,400 feet elevation at Sunrise and climbs moderately a short distance to the top of Sourdough Ridge. Follow the Sourdough Ridge trail west to the five way trial intersection at Frozen Lake. From there, the trail to Mt. Fremont traverses the west side of a rocky ridge for another 1.3 miles to a fire lookout built in the 1930s.

NOTE: Always check current trail conditions before heading out. Log footbridges frequently wash out during the winter or other conditions could be affecting the trail.

Along the Trail
The entire trail from Sunrise to the lookout is through meadowland and over rocky crags. 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.

Backpacking
There is no camping at or around the lookout. Permits are required for camping. Fires are prohibited. No pets on trails. Treat water before drinking.
