Description

Named for William Langille, who was appointed the first forestry officer in Alaska in 1902. (Source: https://redoubtreporter.wordpress.com/2009/09/08/)

Sources vary as to whether this peak or its slightly higher western neighbor (Peak 4422) is Langille Mountain; most seem to reference the eastern location, which is more readily visible from several points on the highway.

Topographic maps also seem to vary somewhat on the height of the summit; I have entered 4297ft as per the map used on Peakbagger.com, but my own ascent's GPX track recorded 4206 as the maximum elevation obtained. Most sources seem to agree on an elevation between 4200 and 4300 feet.
