Teutonia Peak

Cima, California

Teutonia Peak Professional Review and Guide

"Cima Dome appears unremarkable at first, but careful inspection reveals it to be an unusual formation: a nearly symmetrical hump of monzonite nearly 10 miles in diameter protruding from the desert floor. The igneous dome formed underground from an ancient upwelling of magma. The softer overlying rock eroded away, leaving the dome. Its size is best appreciated from a distance; there is a good view from Interstate 15 near the Cima Rd. exit. On its northeast flank, the rocky Teutonia Peak (5755´) breaks the symmetry, and is slightly taller than the center of the dome itself. This hike leads to the peak through one of the world’s largest Joshua tree forests."
