Woodson Mountain Professional Review and Guide
"The native Kumeyaay people called it Mountain of Moonlit Rocks, an appropriate name for a landmark visible, even at night, over great distances. Early white settlers dubbed it Cobbleback Peak, a name utterly descriptive of its rugged, boulder-strewn slopes. For the past 100 years, however, it has appeared on maps simply as Woodson Mountain, in honor of a Dr. Woodson who homesteaded some property nearby well over a century ago."
--Jerry Schad and David Money Harris, 101 Hikes in Southern California: Exploring Mountains, Seashore and Desert (Wilderness Press).
