Birkenhead Peak, commonly known as Mount Birkenhead and sometimes Birkenhead Mountain and also Mount Birken, 2506 m (8222 ft) prominence: 1781 m, is a mountain in the Gates Valleymarker region of the Lillooet Country of the South-Central Interior of British Columbia, Canadamarker. Located approximately midway between the towns of Lillooetmarker (NE) and Pembertonmarker-Mount Currie, the mountain's very high prominence separates it from the adjoining Cadwallader Rangemarker by the pass between Blackwater Creek and Birkenhead Lake.

The mountain was named by Hudson's Bay Company explorer and trader A.C. Anderson on an exploration of the route in 1842 in honour of the crew of HMS Birkenhead; nearby Seton Lakemarker was named in honour of one of its crew who was his school-friend.

The community of Birkenmarker is located at its southwest foot, Birkenhead Lake Provincial Parkmarker and the lake of the same name are on its northwest. It is framed on its north side by Blackwater Creek, a tributary of the Gates Rivermarker, and on its southwest by the valley of the Birkenhead Rivermarker.
