Hiked on the Fourth of July. Stunning views the whole way up. Lots of people and still quiet a bit of snow in some spots. Make sure to bring a camera and lots of water!

Seriously stunning views the whole way! Went on a sunny Saturday, got there around 9am and it wasn't crowded. Make sure you go early, bc the crowd started building up on my way down. Round trip: ~2.5-3 hours with multiple breaks. PLEASE, PLEASE BRING BUG SPRAY. Massive bugs on the way up near the lookout house - we couldn't stay even a few minutes to enjoy the view because of this.

There's gorgeous views from the trailhead to the lookout. Definitely did not disappoint. Gets crowded quick, so go early!

Great hike. Stunning views. Easy hiking, only snow was right before getting up to Frozen Lake. Other than that nothing hard! Beware of bugs at the lookout. They swarm you even when there's a light breeze. Take bug spray!

Went Sunday (2 July 2017) and it was an amazing day. Clear, sunny skies. There were quite a few snowy areas along the Sourdough Ridge/Frozen Lake areas prior to the lookout trailhead that were a little sketchy. However, the Mount Freemont Lookout Trail was pretty clear with a small patch of snow toward the end of the trail. All in all, amazing hike.

It's a good hike and totally worth it because the views are amazing!
The trail still has a lot of snow that you will need too cross in order to make to the look out tower.

Just keep in mind that this is a VERY busy trail on sunny days... Today there were afew hundred people hiking in different directions...

Fairly easy hike for the experienced hiker. The views at the top were well worth the drive there !
