Silver Peak is the highest point on the northwest peninsula of Santa Catalina Island. It holds the very arcane distinction of being the most prominent peak on an island in the 48 contiguous US states that is not an island high point. (Think about that for a second, unless you are rolling your eyes). The key col prominence saddle for Silver Peak is almost at sea level, at Two Harbors.
