Skip down to the introduction to P2000s, the P1000s, the P500s

Skip down to the following Group:  Arc, Charleston, Hayford, Jefferson, Lassen, Matterhorn, Schell, Wheeler, White, Whitney.

The Nevada P2000s:

Nevada has 172 mountain summits with 2,000 feet (609m) of prominence.  Nevada ranks second in the US, behind Alaska, and ahead of California, Montana, and Washington.  This makes Nevada the "Most Mountainous" state in the country, at least by this measure.

The first listing of the Nevada P2000s, was completed in 2003 by Edward Earl, Aaron Maizlish, and Andy Martin.    Information about the nationwide P2000 summits is on the US P2000 homepage.

If you are making progress towards hiking the summits on this list, then you can track your own progress by registering (free) at, and keep track of the leaders on the Prominence Front Runner List.

The Nevada P1000s

Nevada has 647 summits with 1000' of expected prominence.  The listings and maps are included with the 500s, below.   The ratio of 1000s to 2000 is only 3.8:1, much lower than California (5.9:1).

The Nevada P500s

Data Summary:  

There are 2,536 summits in Nevada with 500' or more of expected prominence (error range peaks with less than 500' of expected prominence are not tracked).   This atlas now has maps showing the location of all summits, and will have lists at some point in the future.

The data is organized along the same principles as the California Mountain Atlas.  It would be helpful for you to first understand the concepts of lineage groups and lineage cells.  The data is built around this hierarchy, without regard to county boundaries. 

The state is divided into ten Lineage Groups:

Arc Dome
White CA (small fragment)

Orientation Map for Nevada 10 Lineage Groups

It is important to note that these groups (as with California) do not perfectly match P5000 cells, although they come fairly close.  This is in order to make logical groupings within the state.  The differences between P5000 lineage cells and the atlas groups are as follows:  Pilot Peak combines with Matterhorn.  Star Peak combines with Arc.  Ibapah UT (fragment) and Moriah combine with Wheeler.  Matterhorn has been given its own group, even though it has 4,708' prominence.  It is a logical break at the Humboldt River, that divides the massive Schell cell in half.
All mountains in the atlas belong to one unique lineage cell.
