Butterbredt Peak


Butterbredt Peak is located in Kern County, about 22 miles north of Mojave, 140 miles from Los Angeles. It located on BLM land near Jawbone Canyon. Butterbredt Peak was added to the HPS Peak List in 1969. See the Summit Signature for more history and some background about the name of the peak.
