25F Little San Gorgonio Peak

Location: San Bernardino County, California

Name given by the USPS to distinguish a bump 4.3 miles southwest of San Gorgonio Mountain on the Yucaipa Ridge because this spot was deemed in need of denotation for navigation purposes.

Yucaipa meant "wet or marshy land" and is one of the few surviving Indian place names in Southern California. This summit may have been known as "Kokúská" by the Serrano Indians.

Name first appears on USFS San Bernardino National Forest map 1965).

Peak was added to the HPS Peak List in 1966.
