Location: Los Angeles County, California
Named for one of two Smiths. Will Thrall contended that it was for Eslies Smith, a Pasadena businessman who was brought to Coldbrook Camp near death from "Consumption"--as TB was then known. He was miraculously cured and returned home in a year.
Robinson notes another and perhaps even more likely possibility: Bogus Smith, who was an early miner in San Gabriel Canyon.
USGS benchmark on summit reads "Headlee" (1930).
Name first appears on USFS Angeles National Forest map (1926).
Peak was on the original 1946 HPS Peak List.
