Located in the Camelsfoot Range, 20 km west of the Fraser River. Mt. Birch and neighbouring Mt. Duncan (2.1km southeast) are the high points on a narrow spine of the central Camelsfoot Range, just north of Moha. They are joined by a saddle-ridge that is relatively gentle in comparison to the surrounding terrain. This is an extremely rugged area of the Camelsfoot and access will be difficult from the direction of the Yalakom River.

Name Notes: Mt. Birch is named for Arthur Nonus Birch, appointed Colonial Secretary for British Columbia in 1864 when Governor Seymour took over as governor of the Mainland Colony.
