Beachie Saddle Junction

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Mt. Beachie's north ridge from Beachie Saddle (bobcat)
At Beachie Saddle (bobcat)

Description

Several trails disseminate from Beachie Saddle, which until the 1980s was a trailhead. In fact, FR 4697 led over the saddle (becoming FR 2209) to connect Detroit with the mining operations in the Opal Creek Area. The Battle Ax Mountain Trail #3340 comes down here, and the Battle Ax Creek Trail #3339 follows the old road bed down towards Jawbone Flats.

Also here is the eastern terminus of the Beachie Trail #3341. An unsigned trail to the left of the Beachie Trail takes you up a steep slope and the knife-edged northeast ridge of Mount Beachie, but there is a lot of exposure about half way up.

Compared to the past, there are limited views from Beachie Saddle.
