Mount Beljica

This peak is on the outside SW border of Mt. Rainier National Park, located within the Glacier View Wilderness area.

The trail to the summit is a very well defined one, allowing hikers to walk all the way to the rocky summit outcrop. Trail is accessed from the Lake Christine trail.

The name is a composite made of the initials of the first names of a July, 1897, group of visitors to the mountain. "B" was for Burgon D. Mesler, "E" for Elizabeth Drake, Elizabeth Sharp and Elizabeth Mesler, "L" for Lucy LaWall, "J" for Jesse LaWall, "I" for Isabel Mesler, "C" for Clara Mesler and "A" for Alexander Mesler.
