Tricouni Peak is a mountain located south of Cypress Peak on the Squamish-Cheakamus divide within the Pacific Ranges of the Coast Mountains in southwestern British Columbia, Canada. It was named in 1931 by Tom Fyles et al., the first ascent party. According to Tom Fyles himself, "Tricouni Mountain was the name suggested for the peak, as from a distance it had the appearance of three cones". A misinterpreted "resemblance to a 3-pointed tricouni boot nail" was mentioned only much later, and not by Fyles. The name "Tricouni Peak" was adopted on 22 June 1967.
