Zebulon Pike stepped onto the summit of Fremont Peak on Jan. 5, 1807. Summit log on top. This is down near Royal Gorge and was a nice hike to get out of the Colorado Springs and Teller county areas to some trails less explored by us 'notherners'. The history is a big plus. The trail is easy except for the final ascent, which may be easier when there isn't snow obscuring the trail.
