Coon Creek Peak is a mountain in northern Elko County, Nevada, about 4 miles southwest of the community of Jarbidge. It is considered to be the most northeasterly peak of the Copper Mountains.[2] Located a few miles west of the main crest of the Jarbidge Mountains, it is located within the Jarbidge Ranger District of the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest. The main road entering Jarbidge from the south, Charleston-Jarbidge Road (National Forest Road 062 and Elko County Route 748[3] [4]), runs along the western slopes of the mountain as it travels between Coon Creek Summit and Bear Creek Summit, providing close vehicular access to the summit of Coon Creek Peak.
