The Mormon Mountains are located in Lincoln County, Nevada, between 16 and 28 miles (45 km) northwest of Mesquite, and southeast of the Meadow Valley Mountains. The highest point in the range is Mormon Peak, at 7,414 feet (2,260 m) above sea level. Another smaller mountain range lies to the east, called the East Mormon Mountains. The south fork of the Toquop Wash runs through the mountain range.
The mountains fall under the jurisdiction of the Bureau of Land Management and cover approximately 175 square miles (450 km2). The Mormon mountains are home to several different species of lizards, and ground snakes, toads and bullfrogs can be found in the region. The lower elevations of the range are mostly shrublands, but at higher elevations one can find "Pygmy Conifers" and Single-leaf Pinyon pines, in the Pinyon-juniper woodland plant community.
