Named for Judi Maxwell, a well-known Mountaineers instructor who worked in the slopes below this mountain, Judi's Peak is the unofficial name for a high peak on the southwest border of Bean Creek Basin in the Wenatchee Mountains.

Judi's is a fun scramble which can be approached from a variety of directions and combined with other peaks such as Bills Peak, Bean Peak, and Mary's Peak. The gentle nature of its slopes, the ridges which connect it to these other peaks, and the myriad number of trails mean that you can easily climb Judi's Peak one way and come out another. It is therefore a "loop-trip" dream peak.

Because it lies in a very popular scrambling area, the peak is frequented by many field trips of the Mountaineers who have their final snow instructional trip here. For solitude, come in May or the fall. Otherwise, be prepared to share the peak, not only with Mountaineers, but with other avid climbers.

From the trailhead, cross Beverly Creek on a bridge and hike half a mile to the junction with the Bean Creek Trail. From here, several different routes lead hikers to the summit. The most direct route crosses Bean Creek with varying levels of difficulty depending on the season.

Follow the Beverly Creek trail to the south ridge of Judi's Peak directly on your right. Leave the trail and head up through open pine forest about one mile (with 2500 feet of elevation gain!)
