Lower Peaks Committee

As a result of the wildfires, please contact all local and national forest agencies for current updates.

The Lower Peaks Committee is an entity of the Angeles Chapter of the Sierra Club.

Our Purpose...
To explore and enjoy the mountains around us and to encourage protection and preservation of Lower Elevation Ranges in Southern California

The group is limiting itself to hiking mountain peaks below 5000' in elevation, currently 83 named summits. There are many more mountain peaks above 5000' in elevation to climb in the Hundred Peaks Section. The Lower Peaks Committee encompasses summits below 5,000' in elevation of interest to Southern California hiking enthusiasts. We select only those peaks that are of climbing, historical or geological interest and those which present us with special panoramic views.
