Wheeler Peak is the highest summit of the U.S. State of New Mexico.

This article comprises three sortable tables of major mountain peaks[1] of the U.S. State of New Mexico.

The summit of a mountain or hill may be measured in three principal ways:

  1. The topographic elevation of a summit measures the height of the summit above a geodetic sea level.[2][3] The first table below ranks the 30 highest major summits of New Mexico by elevation.
  2. The topographic prominence of a summit is a measure of how high the summit rises above its surroundings.[4][3] The second table below ranks the 30 most prominent summits of New Mexico.
  3. The topographic isolation (or radius of dominance) of a summit measures how far the summit lies from its nearest point of equal elevation.[5] The third table below ranks the 30 most isolated major summits of New Mexico.

All summits in this article have at least 500 meters of topographic prominence. An ultra-prominent summit is a summit with at least 1500 meters (4921 feet) of topographic prominence.

  3. ^ a b If the elevation or prominence of a summit is calculated as a range of values, the arithmetic mean is shown.
  4. ^ The topographic prominence of a summit is the topographic elevation difference between the summit and its highest or key col to a higher summit.
