Kachess Ridge / Kachess Beacon (#1334)
The nice thing about old aircraft navigation beacon sites is that they always afford a decent view. The trail to Kachess Beacon is steep much of the way, but it is easy to get to, well-shaded, and less than three miles long.

A sign at the small, unimproved trailhead indicates that it is for two trails: 1212 and 1315. Walk a mere 250 feet to the unmarked junction of those two trails. Go left, where an official sign for trail Kachess Ridge Trail #1315 welcomes you. Start steeply up into open forest on broad tread, rising above Silver Creek on your right, and progressing generally north-northeast for nearly a mile.
Easton Ridge Trail (#774)
The Knox Creek Trail climbs quickly out of the meadow through an alpine forest into open rocky outcrops. In about 1 1/4 miles it joins the Kachess Ridge Trail. It then turns north and continues along the ridge with minor ups and downs to a viewpoint above Thorp Lake. Opportunities abound for hikers include photography, wildflowers and picturesque views of the surrounding area. The Thorp Mountain Lookout is also accessible from the Kachess Trail.

Follow I-90, take Exit 80 (a.k.a. Roslyn exit). Head north for approximately three miles to a roundabout. Go around the roundabout and continue heading north. After approximately one more mile, enter Roslyn. Continue straight through town along the main road. The road bends at several locations. The road then goes through the small town of Ronald, and becomes known as Salmon La Sac Road soon after passing through town. After approximately 12.5 miles from Roslyn, turn left onto French Cabin Creek Road #4308. Follow this road for approximately 3.2 miles to a road intersection for Thorp Lake. Continue straight at the junction to the Knox Creek Trail. For more information click here.
