8B Burnt Peak

Location: Los Angeles County, California

Probably named for the frequent appearance of this area. "Burnt" is a rarely used place-name in California, considering the relative frequency of catastrophic fires. The most recent major fire on the Sawmill Ridge was in June 1964. In August 1927 there was a major fire that in 10 days consumed the area from the Ridge Route, east to Lake Hughes.

Before 1926 this peak was called "Sawmill Mountain" on all maps.

First use of current name appeared on the Angeles National Forest map of 1930.

Peak was on the original 1946 HPS Peak List.
