Mount Sheridan is a prominent mountain peak overlooking Heart Lake in the Red Mountains of Yellowstone National Park. The peak is named in honor of General Philip H. Sheridan, U.S. Army, one of the early protectors of the park.
The summit can be reached via the Mount Sheridan Trail 3.3 miles (5.3 km) which spurs off the Heart Lake Trail at the northwest corner of Heart Lake. This is steep climb of 2,700 feet (820 m) in 3 miles (4.8 km), but provide extraordinary views of the park in all directions to include the Grand Tetons to the southwest.
