I'm surprised this hasn't been submitted already. The lightning rod of the Cascades. Located a few miles north of Crater Lake. Pretty good route. Definitely worth a visit if traveling through Central Oregon.

Getting There 

Located in central Oregon. The Mt. Thielsen trailhead is on the East side of route 138, 1.4 miles North of the intersection of routes 138 and 230. A good trail leads to the PCT and then a climbers trail to the summit. 5 miles +/- car to summit.
