Mount Baxter is a peak along the crest of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California. Mount Baxter is on the boundary between Kings Canyon National Park and the John Muir Wilderness just north of Baxter Pass and to the northeast of the Rae Lakes, a popular backpacking destination along the John Muir Trail.
The mountain provides habitat for the endangered Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep and has been closed to entry in the recent past.
