Location: Ventura County, California
Named for Col. Jonathan Doan Hines (ca.1828-98) by "Doc" Guiberson while they were both on a hunting trip. Charles F. Outland states in his Mines, murders and grizzlies, that Guiberson "in pure facetiousness made the original reference to Hines Peak never realizing that the name would stick for all time". Hines was an early area homesteader, lawyer, and was elected Superior Court Judge of Ventura County (1879). He was also reputed to have been an outstanding mountaineer. Hines name first appears in the Ventura County Records (1873).
Name first appears on USGS Southern California Sheet #3 (1910).
Peak was on the original 1946 HPS Peak List.
