Location: San Bernardino County, California
Name given by early Sierra Club skiers and hikers (ca. 1930). It was singled out by Walt Wheelock as one of 30 early m peaks with use-names that at that time had "not yet become well established" (1954).
Gudde notes that this name is elsewhere commonly given as a "wooded" generic term to distinguish it. from a neighboring "bald" peak.
This peak overlooks the Baldy Notch facility of the Mount Baldy Ski Lift Company. They recognized the value of accepting a romantic-sounding local use-name for this peak (1950). With its addition, and the later renaming of the original Mount Harwood to Thunder Mountain by the USBGN, the "three T's" as a dream advertising gimmick were completed (1963).
Name first appears on USGS Cucamonga quad (1953).
Peak was on the original 1946 HPS Peak List.
Weldon Heald climbed this peak in 1933.
