Summit Signatures

4C Eagle Rest Peak

Location: Kern County, California

According to long time area resident Ed Callaway, the peak name was borrowed from local usage dating back to the 1890's for eagles (both Golden and Bald) that were once more plentiful, but may still be found near this summit. He remarked that when hunters in the area were guided by local residents "they liked to know what this or that was known as, so a lot of names were just made up on the spot, and this one stuck".

USGS benchmark on summit reads "Sharp". Name first used on USGS Eagle Rest Peak topo (1942).

Peak was on the original 1946 HPS Peak List.
