28F Apache Peak

Location: Riverside County, California

Named sometime after 1867. Apaches never lived in caffornia, however they are known since to have sent small raiding parties from Arizona as far west as this area. In 1819 Father Senan wrote of these raiders as "some Mohave gentiles arriving from the sierras [sic] of the Colorado". Apaches raided widely, Candalaria told of a legend about a fierce battle between the Sespe Indians and Apaches. Apache flint arrowheads have been found nearby.

Peak was added to the HPS Peak List in 1959.
