North Maggie Mountain (10,234 ft.)
Named by Frank Knowles in 1873
The other is that the Kincaids were on a hunting trip. A government surveyor came by, and stayed with them. He highly praised Maggie Kincaid's biscuits, and asked if she would like to have a mountain named for her. 'Well,' she replied, 'today I sat right on top of this mountain and it doesn't have a name.' So Maggie Mountain it is. (Otter, 156.) The name was on the first Kaweah 30' map, 1904.
The lakes were named after the peak, as suggested by Chester
Versteeg in 1928."
