Greys Peak is the northernmost summit of the East Humboldt Range of Elko County in northeastern Nevada about 10 miles (16 km) southwest of the community of Wells. It rises over 5,000 feet (1,500 m) from the Humboldt Valley, making it one of the most visually prominent peaks in the area. To the west are Dennis Flats, Starr Valley, and remote Greys Lake, while to the east are Chimney Rock, Clover Valley, and popular Angel Lake. The summit is the start of a high crest running almost 10 miles (16 km) to the south.
The peak is named after Enoch Grey, an early homesteader in nearby Starr Valley.
