Mount Grant is both the highest and most topographically prominent mountain in both the Wassuk Range and Mineral County in Nevada, United States. It ranks thirteenth among the most topographically prominent peaks in the state.[3] The peak is located within the Hawthorne Army Depot, resulting in very limited public access.[4]

Mount Grant was named after Ulysses S. Grant (1822–1885), general of the Union during the American Civil War and afterward 18th President of the United States.[5]
