Grant (1822–1885), and is part of the Green Mountains. Mount Grant is flanked to the east by Mount Cleveland and is three miles south of Lincoln Gap.

Mount Grant stands within the watershed of the Lake Champlain. The northeast side of Mount Grant drains into Stetson Brook, thence into the Mad River, the Winooski River, and into Lake Champlain. The south and west sides of Mount Grant drain into the New Haven River, thence into Otter Creek, and into Lake Champlain.
