Frenchman Mountain Tours near Las Vegas
Frenchman Mountain is the broad, prominent peak forming the eastern boundary of the Las Vegas Valley, the closest mountain to the Strip. It is a rocky, treeless ridge visible from everywhere in Las Vegas. It is due east of downtown Las Vegas. The photo at left is the view from the summit of Frenchman Mountain.
Frenchman Mountain is often mistakenly referred to as Sunrise Mountain (which is a separate mountain to the north, on the other side of Lake Mead Blvd, North of Frenchman) The chief interest in climbing the mountain is the fabulous view it offers of Las Vegas. From the summit, you can also see Lake Mead on the other side.
The mountain rises about 1500' to 2000' above the surrounding desert. At the top, there are two summits approximately the same height, about 1/4 mile apart.
