Description

Start at the Schultz Tank Trailhead and follow the Weatherford Trail up an old roadbed. This will be a moderate uphill with switchbacks as it approaches Fremont Saddle. We did not find any water along the way on this early June trip. Once at Fremont saddle, you get your first view of the inner basin. My understanding is that these peaks used to be one big volcano that erupted leaving this basin and these remnant peaks. We camped our first night just past the Saddle at about 10,800 feet. It was quite cold in the morning.

The next day we continued on the Weatherford Trail on the east side of Fremont Peak with continued great views of the Inner Basin past the intersection of the Inner Basin Trail, up some switchbacks to Doyle Saddle. It is very rocky and dry. A little further on you'll see a sign prohibiting entry to Agassiz Peak on penalty of a $500 fine. This peak can only be climbed in winter due to the critical habitat for San Francisco Peaks groundsel, although the trail up to the peak seems to indicate that the sign is ignored.

A little further on you reach the Humphreys Peak Trail.
