Blue Angels Peak is a mountain located in the Sierra Juarez mountains less than 300 yards (270 m) north of the United States-Mexico border in California. The mountain rises to an elevation of 4,552 feet (1,387 m) near the San Diego-Imperial county border and Interstate 8. Despite its relatively low elevation, the summit of Blue Angels Peak is the highest point in Imperial County.[2] A 500 kV power line, an extension of Path 46 into San Diego, traverses the northern foothills of this mountain.[3]

The peak was named in honor of the Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, which was based at a nearby naval air facility in El Centro.[4]
