Overview Mount Fremont is a lookout with the glaciers of Mt Rainier on one side and the National Park and National Forest on the other. To the north is the long line of Cascades and on a clear day you can see the Olympics. Its a 5.5 mile hike to the lookout with an elevation gain of only 900 feet. But the rocky climb has it listed as a difficult trail. The lookout is occupied and used by rangers during times of high fire danger.
