Boney Peak is a peak of the sandstone Boney Mountain formation, in Circle X Ranch Park of the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area in Southern California.[4] It is one of the highest points in the Santa Monica Mountains, and is in Ventura County.

Hiking trails reach Boney Mountain and Peak, and feature views of the Pacific Ocean, Channel Islands, and Mount Baldy. Several lead to a waterfall unofficially called Sycamore Canyon Waterfall.

The Boney Mountain Wilderness area is in the adjacent Point Mugu State Park.
