21G Bertha Peak

Location: San Bernardino County, California

Name is obscure in origin. Robinson suggests it could be for a member of the Benjamin Barton fimily-local pioneers who herded sheep in the area during the 1870's. Another possibility is that Bertha was one of the popular girls of Belleville's Octagon Saloon during the 1860's. There was a Bertha Gold Mine on the East ridge of the peak, ca 1890.

Name first noted on USFS Angeles National Forest map (1915).

Peak was on the original 1946 HPS Peak List.
