California Prominent Peaks List, 201 peaks, Benchmark Table

To assist in locating peaks and planning trips the peaks are listed alphabetically by county. Research done by Andy Martin, Edward Earl and Aaron Maizlish. Benchmark data by Richard Carey.

Key to Column Headings:

County = The county the peak is in. If two are listed then it is on the county line. Prom,ft = The prominence measure of the peak in feet. Peak Name = The name of the peak as shown on the topo map. A Pxxxx ft. with the elevation of the peak if it is not named on the map. Names in parentheses are alternate names for the peak. EL,ft = Elevation in feet. EL,m = Elevation in meters. EL = How the elevation is shown on the map. A BM or VABM entry indicates a brass survey monument or benchmark is at the summit. BM Name = The name stamped on the benchmark. PID = The Permanent Identifier used by the USGS to identify benchmarks. (Revised October 13, 2009)
