Summit Signatures

28H Palm View Peak

Location: Riverside County, California

Name is problematic for most HPS members who have climbed it. As Bob Michaels once observed, there are "no palms, no view, no peak". There is however, record that the summit was not always so shrubby as it is today. San Jacinto RD Fire Officer Clark Harvey recalls that in the early 1930's there was a major fire in this area and that it hasn't burned off since. It was common practice for unnamed peaks in a fire's path to be given arbitrary names by fire fighters, and this was probably the case here. If the view were less obscured, the summit would provide a view to the north of Palm Canyon and Palm Springs.

Name first appears on AMS Hemet Resevoir quad (1942).

Peak was added to the HPS Peak List in 1962.
