Hualapai Peak is a 8,417-foot (2,566 m) mountain summit in Mohave County, Arizona and is the highest point of the Hualapai Mountains.[1] It is located about 15 miles (24 km) southeast of Kingman in Hualapai Mountain County Park.

The mountain is characterized by huge granite outcroppings and pillars, a result of its volcanic origin. Although trails lead to its base, a moderate scramble and climb is required to reach the summit.[3] There are also climbing routes along the trail to the peak.

It is named after the Hualapai Native American tribe. Hualapai means "people of the tall pines".[4]
