The County Peaks List is an offering of the Outings Section of the San Diego Chapter of the Sierra Club. It is composed of one hundred peaks located within San Diego County. Each peak is publicly accessible and with the exception of one, all are rated non-technical1. The peaks on the list were selected based on their accessibility, topography, variety of terrain, prominence, and ability to offer climbers a well-rounded representation of the entire county. Some peaks can be combined for long “grand tour” type outings and backpacks, while some can be done as conditioning hikes after work. The main purpose of the list is to encourage outings to less traveled areas, to explore remote high points, to develop navigational skills and to instill within climbers a sense of stewardship of the land.

Original Peaks List
To avoid confusion, previous list finishers and climbers pursuing a list prior to the final version posted on this website, are credited with a list finish by completing a combination of 100 peaks on any of the list versions. This includes the original San Diego Peak Club List (1991) and the current San Diego Sierra Club County Peak List. In order to maintain clarity, future list finishers will only be credited with a list finish by completing all the peaks currently on the San Diego Sierra Club County Peak List posted on this website.
Depending upon current levels of interest within the club, it can be difficult to locate information regarding outings, leaders and the peaks on this list. To aid in the successful individual pursuit of this list when necessary, the following list pursuers and list finishers have graciously provided contact information for peak list related questions:
