The trail is easy to follow the entire way even though it doesn't show up on any maps except the TOPO layer. From the Big Mountain Pass trailhead it follows the Great Western for the 1st 5.8 miles then heads south and follows a ridge line towards Look-out peak. While Lookout Peak can be climbed from the north the actual trail stays well below the Peak until it joins up with the Lookout Peak trail southeast of Lookout Peak. Great view almost the entire distance because there are no trees on the ridge line.
