Beautiful Sunrise Mountain

Watch the sun rise over beautiful Sunrise Mountain.  Sunrise Mountain is an outdoor destination a bit off the beaten path.  Here visitors will enjoy the natural seclusion of this rarely-climbed peak and be rewarded with birds-eye views of Nellis Air Force Base, Spring Mountains, Lake Mead, Rainbow Gardens, Lava Butte and Las Vegas.

Sunrise Mountain is often confused with neighboring Frenchman Mountain.  Frenchman Mountain lies to the south, and features a more prominent peak on the south side of the pass.  Both mountains contain some of the oldest rocks in North America at their bases.  They date back an astonishing 2 billion years.

Climbing up to the peak can be accomplished from October through May; in summer months the temperatures can soar at lower elevations.  It is a rigorous hike about four miles round trip with a gain in elevation of about 1,300 feet.  Suitable hiking boots are strongly recommended.

To get to Sunrise Mountain, Exit I-15 at Lake Mead Blvd East, Exit 45B.  Drive approximately 8 miles to the east up to the pass between Sunrise and Frenchman.  There is a parking area on the right.

Sunrise Mountain is located east of Las Vegas in Clark County, Nevada.

Even though Sunrise mountain is over 3.3 miles NNW of higher peak Frenchman Mountain many people in the Las Vegas area refer to Frenchman Mountain as Sunrise Mountain since the sun rises from behind it. This confusion dates back many years and the National Geodetic Survey bench mark placed in 1947 on the summit of Frenchman Mountain is designated “Sunrise”. During World War II the U.S. Army maintained an airway beacon on the summit and as of 2007, remains of the tower could still be found.
