Summit Signatures

17A Sugarloaf Peak

Location: San Bernardino County, California

Name is derived from the appearance of this summit. John Robinson, notes that it resembles "a prolate hemispheroid, hence the name". Originally a descriptive term for the distinctive 1oaf-like" shape of sugar as it was sold in general stores before the era of modem packaging. It eventually became widespread as a generic orthographic term for features whose appearance recalls this shape-when so used it becomes a single word.

Name First appears on USGS Angeles National Forest Atlas (1908).

Peak was on the original 1946 HPS Peak List.
