Mount McKinley (Denali), the highest peak in North America

This article comprises three sortable tables of the major mountain peaks of the United States of America.

Topographic elevation is the vertical distance above the reference geoid, a precise mathematical model of the Earth's sea level as an equipotential gravitational surface. Topographic prominence is the elevation difference between the summit and the highest or key col to a higher summit. Topographic isolation is the minimum great circle distance to a point of higher elevation.

This article defines a significant summit as a summit with at least 100 meters (328.1 feet) of topographic prominence, and a major summit as a summit with at least 500 meters (1640.4 feet) of topographic prominence. An ultra-prominent summit is a summit with at least 1500 meters (4921.3 feet) of topographic prominence. There are 129 ultra-prominent summits in the United States.

All elevations in the 48 states of the contiguous United States include an elevation adjustment from the National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 (NGVD 29) to the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD 88). For further information, please see this United States National Geodetic Survey note.

Highest major summits[edit]

The following sortable table lists the 50 highest mountain peaks of the United States with at least 500 meters (1640.4 feet) of topographic prominence. Of these 50 highest major peaks, 28 are located in Colorado, 14 in Alaska, 7 in California, and 1 in Washington. The 11 tallest peaks in the United States all reside in Alaska. California's Mount Whitney, which comes in at 12th on the list, is the highest in the contiguous United States at 14,505 feet (4,421 m). Colorado's Mount Elbert at 14,440 feet (4,400 m) is the second tallest peak in contiguous United States, followed by Mount Massive in Colorado at 14,428 feet (4,398 m), Mount Harvard in Colorado at 14,421 feet (4,396 m), and Mount Rainier in Washington at 14,411 feet (4,392 m).
