Location: Kern County, California
Named by the Forest Service, presumably because of the similarity of the form of this peak to a Mexican ziggurat.
Name first appears on USFS Sequoia National Forest map (1940).
Peak was added to the HPS Peak List in 1970, as follows:
MAYAN PEAK (6105) Butterbread canyon area.

scree runs - 15 minutes descent time. Exploratory led Jan. 18, 1970.
