Overview

Shenandoah Peak


Shenandoah Peak lies at the southern end of the Spring Mountains of Southern Nevada. It is part of the North Mesquite Wilderness Area. It rises to the west above the community of Good Springs, NV. This classic desert peak offers great views of Mt. Potosi to the North, Clark Mountain south into California, McCullough Mountain to the East, and you can get a glimpse of Mt. Charleston and Griffith Peak to the NW.

Shenandoah Peak, located west of Goodsprings in the Spring Mountains, was named to commemorate Confederate victories in VA in 1862.
