Don't be fooled by the USGS topographic map--it is missing several contours on Toe Jam Hill. LIDAR analysis confirms that it is the highest point on Bainbridge Island at 425 feet, well above the 360 foot contour on the USGS map.

From Craig Willis's research: The original name for the peak was Torjam Hill (or sometimes Torjam's Hill), such nicknamed for the first resident of that area of Bainbridge Island, but later residents began calling the peak Toe Jam Hill. I also found out from two locals that the summit, which is now forest-covered, was home to an anti-aircraft lookout building during WWII. No remnants remain of that building. Later, the peak and immediate area were used as a watershed area. Currently, many upper areas of the peak are now part of a privately-owned Natural Resources Management Area, [owned by the Country Club of Seattle, which maintains a small 9-hole golf course on the nearby southwest point of Bainbridge Island.]
