Peakbagging Lists of Nevada


Below is a list of the Nevada County High Points. These peaks or points are the absolute highest in the county, even if it doesn't fall on a mountain summit or have any kind of prominence.

A list of Nevada's County Prominence Peaks is also provided. There is a nine peak difference between the county high points and the county prominence peaks. The most prominent peak in each county is not necessarily the highest.

Nevada's Second Lap List is at the bottom. There are eight peaks on this list that are not county high points or county prominence peaks. "Second Lap" peaks are the next most prominent peak in the county, in counties where the COHP and CPP are the same.
