Grizzly Peak

Grizzly Peak is the centerpiece of Disney California Adventure at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. Grizzly Peak is a man-made, 110-foot (34 m) mountain in the shape of a grizzly bear, which represents California's state animal. It was created with large steel cages, which were soon lathed and carved as rock.

Grizzly Peak is located in the Grizzly Peak park's eponymous land which also houses Grizzly River Run, a large rapids ride through a mining camp at the mountain. Originally, the mountain was to have the face of the bear face south, with a waterfall from his mouth.

It was recently considered to use the mountain as a possible location for a new Country Bear Jamboree theatre and a gold rush themed mining train adventure, although the mountain's infrastructure did not allow for this to be feasible.

The centerpiece structure is also featured in Hong Kong Disneyland's Grizzly Gulch themed land.
