22C Slide Peak

Location: San Bernardino County, California

Horace Hinckley, who was once the general manager of the Bear Valley Mutual Water Company, and whose family were area pioneers, recalled his father telling him that this name was given due to a winter earthquake that caused saturated ground to slide down this mountain into Bear Creek and create an earthen dam almost 100' high (ca. 1900). After Slide Lake formed, this barrier gave way but a residual pond remained for many years. Today it is the site of USFS Slide Lake Campground.

Name first appears on USGS Redlands quad (1901).

Peak was on the original 1946 HPS Peak List. Weldon Heald climbed this peak in 1945.
