This summit is located on the southeastern border of Redwood National Park, about two miles SE of Schoolhouse Peak in the Bald Hills. Schoolhouse was the park's highpoint until its boundaries were extended in 1978 to prevent runoff stream damage to Redwood Creek.

Most of the terrain in the 1978 park addition had been logged. However, in 2006 local tall tree hunters located the tallest tree in the world in this tract--somehow it had been spared from being clear-cut. The "Hyperion Giant" is 379 feet tall, and its location is kept secret to prevent hordes of visitors from disturbing the environment in its vicinity. All they will say is that this tree is in the 1978 Redwood National Park addition, which means it may be very near the park high point. The park designation for this land likely saved the world's tallest tree from being cut down.
