Mount Baden-Powell is a peak in the San Gabriel Mountains of California named for the founder of the World Scouting Movement, Lord Baden-Powell. It was officially recognized by the USGS at a dedication ceremony in 1931. It was originally known as East Twin or North Baldy.
Mount Baden-Powell is the 4th highest peak of the San Gabriel Range, Mount San Antonio or "Old Baldy" being the highest at 10,064 feet (3,068 m). The summit has long been a favorite hiking excursion either from the Mount Islip Saddle near Little Jimmy Trail Camp, or the Vincent Gap Trail which leads up a moderate to strenuous set of switchbacks from Wrightwood. Mount Baden-Powell is also the high point along the The Silver Moccasin Trail, a historic 53-mile (85 km) Boy Scout hiking trail, connects this summit to Mount Burnham (less than 1 mile (1.6 km) away), Throop Peak and Mount Hawkins.
