You can hike Teanaway Peak via the Beverly Turnpike trail #1391 or via Iron Peak trail to the Turnike trail junction at 5600 ft. The Iron Peak approach is shorter but has more elevation gain. This description is for the Beverly Turnpike approach.

About 3 miles up the Beverly Turnpike trail reach the junction at 5180 ft. Take the left fork to the Turnpike trail junction at 5600 ft. Continue to the right about 0.4 miles to "Turnpike Pass." Here leave the trail and follow the broad east ridge. The slope is moderate and the open forest presents no difficulties. Stay right of a slabby cliff and proceed to a step in the ridge at ca. 6250 ft. Drop off the ridge to the left down a gully full of loose rocks about 70 ft. and regain the ridge on steep loose gravel at about 6350 ft.

From there it's a straightforward climb to the summit. Scrambling experience recommended. Great views of the entire Stuart Range.

Getting There

Take Exit 85 (East Cle Elum) off of I-90, going north over the freeway. Take a right to get onto SR-970 east, which also takes you to US-97. Follow SR-970 to the left when it splits with SR-10. Cross the Teanaway River bridge, and in another mile turn left onto Teanaway Road. Drive north on Teanaway Road, veering right as it becomes first North Fork Teanaway Road and then unpaved Forest Road 9737 at 29 Pines Campground.

Continue north for just under four miles and immediately before the Beverly Creek bridge and turn right (east) onto FR 9737-112, signed for Beverly Creek. Drive approximately 1.4 miles down a much bumpier, rocky, and overgrown one-lane unpaved road to its end at the trailhead and its parking lot. The parking lot has space for at least 15 vehicles.

While the drive to Bean Creek Basin is long and relatively easy, the last 1.4 miles on Forest Road 9737-112 is a rocky, and potholed one-lane road that sedans and smaller cars may find difficult to navigate.
