Fremont Point Day Use Trailhead

  

View looking out from winter rim at Summer Lake below.

Provides access to Fremont National Recreation Trail from the day use area. This multi-use trail features hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding opportunities for miles. Less than a half mile beyond the day use area on a primitive road lies the Fremont Point Cabin, available by reservation only.

Located right on the edge of Winter Rim 55 minutes southeast of Paisley, Oregon, The Fremont Point Day Use Area offers a dramatic, windswept landscape with commanding views. Mesmerizing vistas include Summer Lake, the Great Basin and distant mountain ranges. Perched on a vertical rocky overlook at over 7,000 feet in elevation, this open, sagebrush setting is an ideal place for a scenic picnic or quiet afternoon.

Amenities include a picnic table and vaulted toilet. There is no potable water. Visitors need to bring an adequate supply of water.
