Mount Eddy is the highest summit in Trinity Mountains of the Klamath Mountains. This California mountain rises to an elevation of 9,025 feet (2,751 m) west of Mount Shasta City and the massive Mount Shasta volcano. The summit is the highest point in Trinity County, the ninth most prominent peak in California and the highest summit west of Interstate 5 in the United States. The mountain receives heavy snowfall during the winter due to its altitude.
The mountain is named in honor of Nelson Harvey Eddy, who arrived in the area from New York State in 1856. He later became a successful rancher in the Shasta Valley. The original, Wintu, name might have been Num-mel-be-le-sas-pam or "west blaze mountain".
