Location: Santa Barbara County, California
Named for Charles Fox (n.d.), who was Angeles Chapter Chair (1916-18, 1921-25). According to longtime area resident E. Lamar Johnston: "Fox owned the Santa Barbara Canyon Ranch and his holdings went west right up to the peak. He sold it at the turn of the century, but it was named for him."
This was one of the parcels that formed the nucleus of what later became the Los Padres National Forest.
Name first appears on the Zaca Peak/Pine Mountain Forest Reserve map (1898).
Peak was on the original 1946 HPS Peak List.
