Arc Dome is the high point of the Toiyabe Range in northwestern Nye County, in central Nevada in the western United States. It is one of the most prominent peaks in the contiguous states.[4] The peak is located about 53 miles (85 km) north of the community of Tonopah. The higher elevations of this section of the Toiyabe Range are in the Arc Dome Wilderness.

Arc Dome is sometimes confused with Toiyabe Dome, but these are separate peaks. Toiyabe Dome at 11,361 feet (3,463 m) is about 5 miles (8.0 km) southeast of Arc Dome, above the small community of Carvers, Nevada.[5]
