23E Meeks Mountain

Location: San Bernardino County, California

Named for S. H. Meek, a locally famous desperado active during the 1880's. He was known to have resided near this peak. However, the only verifiable data on him is with the County Recorder. This cites him (with his neighbor D.E.W, Rouse) in a joint filing for rights to conduct and use water from nearby Baptiste Canyon (1886).

Name first appears on USFS San Bernardino National Forest map (1959).

Name officially accepted by USBGN (1982).

Peak was added to the HPS Peak List in 1961.
