Description

Mount Beachie trail starts from the Beachie Saddle at an intersection with Battle Axe Tie, Battle Ax Mountain Trail #3340, and Battle Axe Creek Trail #3339 and ends at French Creek Ridge Trail #3349 so you'll have to take a trail to get to it. The need to take a rough road and a trail to get to this trail which doesn't have views as nice as its neighbors means that this route doesn't get a lot of foot traffic. It can offer solitude if you can deal with and navigate how overgrown it can be.

The trail passes through some forest, over a few scree fields that offer views of Battle Ax Creek valley, and through some very very thick brush. Be mindful to not loose the trail! Eventually the trail climbs up enough to offer some nice views from some rocky clearings that make good resting places. The true summit is a short easy bushwhack to the east of the trail. After the summit the trail descends to a lower saddle. A few more open rocky sections open views to the southeast. A final short ascent will bring you to French Creek Ridge Trail #3349.
