14D South Mount Hawkins (LO)

Location: Los Angeles County, California

Named "South Hawkins" by Jack Bascom during the time when (on the Chapter Schedule Committee). he was inventing titles so as to have named destinations for his Sierra Club hikes (1941).

The USFS built a fire lookout here consisting of a 30' open timber tower with a 14' by 14' wood cab (1927), rebuilt (1935). Presently a cooperative agreement with REI may move it and create an interpretive display area at some other location.

Called "South Hawkins Point" on original HPS Peak List.

Name first appears on USGS Rock Creek quad (1940).

Peak was on the original 1946 HPS Peak List. Weldon Heald climbed this peak in 1939.
