Gannet Peak with Gannett Glacier
Gannett Peak is the highest summit of the Wind River Range, the U.S. State of Wyoming, and the Central Rocky Mountains.

This article comprises three sortable tables of major mountain peaks of the U.S. State of Wyoming.

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. The first table below ranks the 40 highest major summits of Wyoming by elevation.
  2. The topographic prominence of a summit is a measure of how high the summit rises above its surroundings. The second table below ranks the 40 most prominent summits of Wyoming.
  3. The topographic isolation (or radius of dominance) of a summit measures how far the summit lies from its nearest point of equal elevation. The third table below ranks the 40 most isolated major summits of Wyoming.

Highest major summits

Of the highest major summits of Wyoming, five peaks exceed 4000 meters (13,123 feet) elevation, 16 peaks exceed 3500 meters (11,483 feet), and 38 peaks exceed 3000 meters (9843 feet) elevation.
