History

Mount Burke was named for PlumperHMS while surveying Burrard Inlet in 1859.[4][5]

The mountain was placed in Pinecone Burke Provincial Park on the park's creation in 1995.[6]

Many people confuse Mount Burke, with the much higher and larger Burke Ridge, which is more commonly known as Burke Mountain, and in the 1920s Burke Ridge was more commonly known as Dollar Mountain, after the Canadian Robert Dollar Company, who logged the lower portions of the mountain.
