Pylon Peak is the southernmost summit of the six named volcanic peaks of Mount Meager in British Columbia, Canada. Two pinnacled ridges extend out from Pylon and are named respectively the Pylons and the Marionettes. Pylon Peak overlooks the Meager Creek Hot Springs.

Erosional remnants of flows from Devastator Peak form the stratified crags of Pylon Peak. These flows occurred 0.5-1.0 million years ago.
