Excellent summer run with beautiful valley views. Locked gate during winter, however; a tight gate bypass is available if you don't mind pin striping. (I fit a four door jeep down it) It is not mapped but this trail does connect to 8N04B and over to the Frazier Mountain lookout. Trail is rough,sharp stone for about 70% street tires are not recommended as they will get torn up by the stone. Slow progress until you reach 8N04B expect about 45-1hour drive one way.

The trail mapped here is not the Lockwood Creek Trail, but rather, it is the West Frazier Mine trail. It eventually connects to the Lockwood Creek Trail, but not as it is shown on the trail map.
The trail shown is the old route for the West Frazier Mine Road. Most of the portion from Lockwood Valley Road to the first intersection (about 1.5 miles in) is now closed to vehicles, as they access this road from the Frazier Mountain Road instead. A left turn at the intersection would take you back to the beginning of the vehicle route. Continuing straight at the intersection takes you up the west side of Frazier Mountain where the West Frazier Tie Road veers to the left, taking you to the summit of Frazier Mountain. Continuing straight at this point will take you into Lockwood Valley and connect with the Lockwood Creek Trail.
Most of this route is a rocky four-wheel-drive trail, with several stretches where there is little to no shade. The climb is moderate, but manageable.
I've been over this road on a motorcycle and in a truck, and have also hiked a portion of it. The scenery is pleasant, though not what I would consider exceptional, so I prefer to drive over this route as opposed to hiking it. There are other places nearby that I prefer to hike instead.
