The trail heads south through orchards along the Fremont River before ascending sloping rock strata to a vista point on Miner's Mountain. The 2.5-mile roundtrip takes about 90 minutes and climbs 770 feet.

Active and AdventureExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • The first half mile is easy.
  • You might see signs of beaver along the river, where they chew willows and cottonwoods.
  • Both the river and the cottonwood trees that you pass take their name from explorer John C. Fremont, who traveled near this area in the 1850s.
