Fremont Canyon was named after General John Charles Fremont, who explored the canyon in 1842 when he was a Lieutenant in the Army. Pathfinder Dam located three miles upstream was also named for the explorer known as the "Pathfinder" who was instrumental in mapping the west. Fremont attempted to navigated this canyon by boat on August 24, 1842. The attempt resulted in failure as the boat and all provisions were lost.
The vertical cliffs are over 200 feet (61m) high at this site near the canyon entrance and exceed 500 feet (152m) in some areas. This scenic canyon is popular with rock climbers, eagles, and a variety of wildlife.
