14F Mount Hawkins

Location: Los Angeles County, California

Named by the USFS for Nellie Hawkins, a very popular waitress at the rustic "Squirrel Inn" at nearby Crystal Lake (1901-06). Robinson adds that "she charmed and attracted miners, hunters, campers-just about every mountain man for miles around." Whatever happened to charming Nellie in later years is a subject for conjecture.

Name first appears on USFS Angeles Nationa Forest map (1925).

Peak was on the original 1946 HPS Peak List. Weldon Heald climbed this peak in 1935.
