22A Mill Peak

Location: San Bernardino County, California

Timber was the first lure into this area. In the first lumber operation, Mountain Hemlock (Tsuga mertensiana) were cut by Serrano Indians at Mill Creek for use in the construction of the satellite Mission at San Bernardino (1830). Hemlock Creek flows from the southeast slope of this peak. Lumbering was well under way here by the 1840's. Mill Creek earned its name from the San Bernardino's first lumber mill built by Daniel Sexton (1852). It was also here that the first water was taken via a "zanja" (irrigation ditch) to the valley below (1820).

Name first appears on USGS Redlands topo (1901).

Peak was on the original 1946 HPS Peak List.
