The Old Dad Mountains are a mountain range in San Bernardino County, California.

The range is named for Joseph "Old Dad" Wallace, a rail worker turned prospector from nearby Kelso. Accused of the murder of his fiancée, he left town and supported himself through mining the mountain range with his team of donkeys.
