Creek valley, forest, meadow, ridgetop.
From its start at the junction with trail 1391, Bean Creek Trail heads uphill along the right bank of Bean Creek and then crosses it after 0.25 mile and heads up the left bank, often staying high up on a steep hillside above the creek. It passes through meadows and stands of trees.
At about the 2 mile point, the trail, now in open country, crosses the creek again and begins switchbacking up a steep mountainside through rocks and sparse trees to a rocky ridgetop on the southwest side of Earl Peak.
From there, it heads downhill to the end of the trail at its junction with Standup Creek Trail 1369. Water is available along Bean Creek and beyond the junction with 1369.
