Mount Grant is one of the highest and most prominent peaks in the area of the Great Basin south of Lake Tahoe. A realtively gentle hulk of talus, the peak dominates the Wassuk Range and the nearby town of Hawthorne. It is a particularly dry mountain, even for Nevada, due to the rain shadow of the Sierra Nevada.

Warning! Mount Grant is located on the Hawthorne Army Ammunition Depot, and access is closed to the public. In addition to being one of the largest munitions storage sites in the US, the area around Mount Grant is also used for live-fire training of soldiers. The altitude and terrain is similar to what US forces would encounter in Afghanistan. Trespassing on this peak could lead to arrest, or, far worse, accidental death.
