The Fremont National Recreation Trail is currently still under construction. At this time (2\/29\/00) users can travel south from Antler Trailhead for 54 miles to the Paisley Ranger District boundary; approximately three and a half miles south of Fremont Point. Construction of the gap between this present southern terminus and Government Harvey Pass is planned for the summer of 2000. Once this is completed the trail will be continuous for a distance of 104 miles from Antler Trailhead to Cox Pass.

Accommodations include five campsites (with tables and fire grills), an accessible outhouse, drinking water (June through October), horse corrals and hitching rails. Activities that are accessed from here include camping, hiking, horseback riding, mountain bike riding and photography.

Once this trail is completed it will traverse the entire length of the Fremont National Forest from north to south and it is planned to eventually connect the Pacific Crest Trail to the Desert Scenic Trail. The Fremont National Forest has been actively working on this trail since 1987 and the project is nearing completion, with only two gaps of about 15 miles each left to be constructed at this time (March 2000).

In the northwest portion of the Fremont National Forest the Fremont NRT # 160 begins at the top of 8196 foot Yamsay Mountain. On this summit the views are spectacular. Panoramic vistas of Mt. Shasta, Fort Rock Basin, and numerous snowcapped peaks of the Cascade Range are spread out in front of the viewer. It is a photographers dream come true.

As the trail travels east it passes through a variety of environments including open ponderosa pine stands, alpine meadows, dense lodgepole pine stand, mountain mahogany thickets, trout-filled mountain streams, and colorful rock outcrops. It climbs to the summit of Hager Mountain. for more panoramic vistas of the mountains and the deserts of the northern Great Basin. The contrasts between the green valleys and sparkling lakes and the stark vertical rock formations like Table Rock and Winter Rim are striking.

Near Farmwell Trailhead the trail turns south and ascends to the top of Winter Rim which it follows for the next 30 miles. (14 miles constructed at this time, March 2000). The views along this section are primarily of the Summer Lake Basin and the high desert off to the east (photo). The viewers vantage point from atop Winter Rim is about 2000 feet above the valley floor on a nearly vertical fault block. It's almost like being in an aircraft as you look over the edge of these spectacular cliffs.

Good trailhead facilities are found along the trail at intervals of from five to ten miles. The trail is well signed and is marked with grey diamonds and red, white, and blue NRT logo reassurance markers. Pack stock watering chances are located along the route every two or three miles. Sites suitable for primitive camping are common. There are a number of road access points available for shuttle vehicle parking on this route for users who do not wish to travel the entire distance (see Forest visitor map available at all Fremont NF offices).
