Mount Grant

A memorable road trip to Mount Grant in NV

Mount Grant is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 3.388m (11,115ft) above the sea level, located in Mineral County, in the U.S. state of Nevada. It's one of the highest roads of Nevada.

Set high in the Wassuk Range, the road to the summit is totally unpaved. A 4WD vehicle with high-clearance is required. This road is usually closed from late October through late June or early July (depending on snow). It is not generally snow-free until late June or even July in some years. The trail is narrow with few places for passing so meeting someone can be a challenge. The peak is located within the Hawthorne Army Depot, resulting in very limited public access.

The road to the summit is very steep, hitting a 10% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps. Starting at Walker Lake, the ascent is 24.78km (15.4 miles) long. Over this distance the elevation gain is 2.057 meters. The average gradient is 8.30%. The peak was named after Ulysses S. Grant, 18th President of the United States.
