Little Kachess Peak

Little Kachess Peak is an 8 mile easy rock and snow scramble, with 3,000 feet of elevation gain. It has outstanding spring wildflowers in May and June, in addition to views of Kachess Lake and surrounding peaks on the long ridge run from Kachess Beacon to the summit. This trip is a hike with no snow.


Follow Trail No. 1305 (Silver Creek Trail) for 1.9 mil to the ridge. A boot track leaves the trail, traversing open rock left (west) to the ridge line, at about 3,700 ft. Continue west, then north, to the old radio tower called Kachess Beacon. Follow the ridge north to the peak at 5,194 ft, which unofficially is called Little Kachess.
