This trail is a combined use trail and is periodically groomed for snowmobiles. The skier follows the same route back to Sno-Park to complete the trip.

The Lakewest trail follows the old Diamond Lake Highway. The road maintains a character with ups and downs and lots of turns along the way. The trail starts out in a stand of lodgepole trees that seem to thicken as you go. Right before reaching Lakewest, the Upper Rogue River is crossed just a short distance from its origin at Boundary Springs within Crater Lake National Park. At Lakewest, is the Taylor Caine shelter built by the Grants Pass Nordic Club honoring a long time member. The shelter has a stove to warm up by prior to the return trip. Please be considerate of others in use of this shelter, once it is gone, there may never be another.

The elevation of this trail ranges from 5000' to 5400'. Be sure to check weather conditions before starting.

The last mile has open dry meadows and the final 500 feet to the top is a scramble along a narrow rocky ridge. Views from the top are spectacular and include Diamond, Miller and Maidu Lakes, Mt. Bailey, Mt. Thielsen and other Cascade peaks to the north and south. Expect gusty winds at the top. The Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail #2000 is a .3 mile scramble down the southeast side of the peak. The route is not marked or managed as a trail. There are no campsites or water along the trail.

Because this trail is located in the Mount Thielsen Wilderness, all motorized and mountain bike use is prohibited as stated in the Forest Plan.
