Denali Mt McKinley
Denali in Alaska is the highest mountain peak of the United States and North America. Denali is the third most topographically prominent and third most topographically isolated summit on Earth after Mount Everest and Aconcagua.

This article comprises three sortable tables of major mountain peaks of the United States of America.

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

  1. The topographic elevation of a summit measures the height of the tip of a mountain above a geodetic sea level. The first table below ranks the 100 highest major summits of the United States 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 50 most prominent summits of the United States.
  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 50 most isolated major summits of the United States.

Highest major summits

Of the 100 highest major summits of the United States, only Denali exceeds 6000 meters (19,685 feet) elevation, four peaks exceed 5000 meters (16,404 feet), and all 100 peaks exceed 4012 meters (13,163 feet) elevation.

Of these 100 summits, 53 are located in Colorado, 23 in Alaska, 14 in California, five in Wyoming, two in Hawaiʻi, and one each in Washington, Utah, and New Mexico. Five of these summits are located on the international border between Alaska and Yukon, and one is located on the international border between Alaska and British Columbia. The ten highest major summits of the United States are all located in Alaska.
