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 [1] of the United States of America.

Summit A point on a surface that is higher in elevation than all points immediately adjacent to it, in topography

A summit is a point on a surface that is higher in elevation than all points immediately adjacent to it. The topographic terms acme, apex, peak, and zenith are synonymous.

United States Federal republic in North America

The United States of America (USA), commonly known as the United States or simply America, is a country comprising 50 states, a federal district, five major self-governing territories, and various possessions. At 3.8 million square miles, the United States is the world's third or fourth largest country by total area and is slightly smaller than the entire continent of Europe. With a population of over 327 million people, the U.S. is the third most populous country. The capital is Washington, D.C., and the most populous city is New York City. Most of the country is located contiguously in North America between Canada and 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 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. [4] [3] 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. [5] The third table below ranks the 50 most isolated major summits of the United States.

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.
