The Bullfrog Hills are a small range of mountains in southern Nye County, Nevada. The historic Rhyolite, Nevada, mining district was in the Bullfrog Hills, and the Tonopah and Tidewater Railroad crossed the hills to its Rhyolite station via the Bullfrog Goldfield Railroad. The Bullfrog mining district was located along the south margin of the hills. The original Bullfrog Mine is located on the south flank of Bullfrog Mountain to the west of Rhyolite and now just inside the northeast corner of the Death Valley National Monument. Beatty and the Bare Mountains lie to the east. To the north is Pahute Mesa beyond US Route 95 and the Sarcobatus Flat. To the south lies the Amargosa Desert and Nevada State Route 374. To the southwest lies the Amargosa Range along the Nevada–California border.
The highpoint of the range is Sawtooth Mountain, 6,005 feet (1,830 m).
