California Peaks (summary of names only)

California peaks starting with  A  B  C  D  E  F  G  H  I  J  K  L  M  N  O  P  Q  R  S  T  U  V  W  X  Y  Z

On the California Peaks page, 1993 peaks above 5690 feet are marked as 'USGS peak'.
Peaks from non-USGS sources are also included, and they may be lower altitude.
(The USGS elevation range was chosen to present no more than 2000 peaks from that source.)

Peaks are listed alphabetically below, and do not include prefixes or suffixes like North/South, Peak, Mt, Knob, etc. For example, you can look up "Mt Rose" as simply "rose", and "Pilot Knob" as "pilot". Coordinates from the USGS use North American Datum 1927 (NAD27) latitude and longitude coordinates, in decimal degrees. For comparison, coordinates from the Sierra Peaks database are given in North American Datum 1983 (NAD83). Both sets of coordinates are shown as links to Google Maps.

Beware the online map links from the USGS pages, because they show somewhat rough locations - the peaks are NEAR the marked point, but other databases (like the Sierra Peaks and Desert Peaks list) are more accurate.

Follow links to the Climber.Org Trip Reports for other people's experience, and remember to file your own report!

Follow the links to Climber.Org Sierra Peaks or Climber.Org Desert Peaks entries (supersets of Sierra Club peak lists) if you want info including climbing difficulty, online GIF maps showing all peaks in a region (courtesy of TOPO!), and UTM coordinates. Also from these peaks pages you can click on the coordinates to view a scalable online map from Google Maps, and pictures of many peaks from Ron Karpel.

Follow the links to Vulgarian Ramblers entries if you want info including climbing difficulty, prominence, guidebook pages, and coordinates for CA 13ers.
