American Border Peak is a mountain just south of the US-Canada border, in the North Cascades of Washington state. It is located within the Mount Baker Wilderness, part of the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, near North Cascades National Park. It is notable for its large, steep local relief; however its somewhat rotten rock makes it less appealing to climbers than nearby Slesse Mountain.

Notes

# The height of the peak is given on some maps as 8,026 ft (2,446 m).
