19? Jobs Peak

Location: San Bernardino County, California

Named for the "Job's Peak Mill"-one of the operations that cut timber in Sawpit Canyon (ca. 1875), and sent it out via the Devil Canyon Toll Road begun by its owners William Van Slyke and Ernst Somers. This area would later be developed for summer residences (1924). The reference is obviously to the Biblical prophet Job who wouldn't allow a mountain of troubles to deminish his faith-why this name came to be given here however, remains unclear.

Lookout: USFS emergency site (1935), abandoned (n.d.).

Delisted from HPS Peak List when development of this area made it unworthy (1960).

Name first appears on USGS Hesperia quad (1902).

Peak was on the original 1946 HPS Peak List. Weldon Heald climbed this peak in 1941.
