Bonnet Peak
A massif consisting of three separate peaks. It is near the source of Johnson Creek although its southern and eastern slopes drain into the Cascade River. The three peaks are typically designated as South (S), Center (C) and Northeast (NE). Just to the west of all three peaks is the Bonnet Glacier which can be reached without difficulty from either the north (Valley of the Hidden Lakes) or from the south (Badger Pass). .

Name Notes: Named in 1890 due to its appearance with a cap of snow. The S peak was first climbed in the last century (1890) by A. St. Cyr. The center peak (C) was climbed 24 years later in 1914 by the Topographical Survey and is the official peak.
