*Historic and local names of these peaks are from Joseph Kramarsic's book Mountaineering in the Park Range-A Guide to Mountains of the Mount Zirkel-Dome Peak Wilderness Area".

**There is some confusion as to whether Buck Mountain belongs to the Park Range or the Sierra Madre. The USGS 1:24,000 scale map labels it in the Sierra Madre, as do most other maps, while the USGS 1:250,000 scale map labels it in the Park Range. The 1:100,000 scale map isn't clear either way.
