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.[1] It was originally known as East Twin or North Baldy.[2]

At Skabelon:Convert in elevation, Mount Baden-Powell is the 4th highest peak of the San Gabriel Range, Mount San Antonio or "Old Baldy" being the highest at Skabelon:Convert. 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 Skabelon:Convert Boy Scout hiking trail, connects this summit to Mount Burnham (less than Skabelon:Convert away), Throop Peak and Mount Hawkins.

The Vincent Gap hike leads through a variety of forested areas consisting of Jeffrey Pine, Ponderosa Pine, Lodgepole Pine, Incense-cedar, and an ancient forest of Limber Pine some of which are more than 2,000 years old.

In 1957 several Southern California councils of the Boy Scouts of America placed a formal marker at the summit with a plaque dedicated to Lord Baden-Powell.
