13H Pinyon Ridge

Location: Los Angeles County, California

Name derived from the edible pine nut seed which in Spanish is "piñón". It is a common place name in California usually found in semi arid areas where these trees are native. Two species bear these nuts, the "Parry Pinyon" also known as the "Four needle Pinyon" (Pinus parryanna) which is native on the Peninsular Ranges, and the "Singleleaf Pinyon Pine" (Pinus monophylla). Both are also known as the "Nut Pine", and were of great value to local Indians.

Name first appears on USGS Southern California Sheet #1 (1901).

Peak was on the original 1946 HPS Peak List.
