Fremont Peak is in the San Francisco Peaks of northern Arizona. It is the third highest point in the state of Arizona.[1] The peak, named in honor John C. Frémont (1813-1890), is in the Kachina Peaks Wilderness on the Coconino National Forest.

Fremont offers the best year round views of the south from any high point in the San Francisco Peaks. It can be seen from Flagstaff, Arizona as the pointy peak on the right.
