Mt Fremont Fire Lookout

Administrative agency:  Mt. Rainier NP

Staffing status:  it is “staffed” by a park representative during the summer weekend to answer questions, it is also used for emergencies

Elevation:  7181 ft

Structure:  1934 two story NPS cab

Access:  an easy 3 mile hike is necessary to reach the LO, it is signed several times, but it is best to pick up a free map at the visitors center 

Road conditions:  the road to the Sunrise Visitors Center is paved

Interior:  the cab is furnished with propane lighting, a stove, and possibly heater, two beds, a table, and shelves are also present

Other structures on summit:  none, propane tanks are portable

Electrical power source:  a solar panel is present to power the radio repeater housed in the LO, as well as two florescent lights in the cab

Other:  for some reason the tower is not located on the summit, rather slightly lower on the ridge, the view is likely excellent, although it was fogged in during my visit
