Arizona, United States
Granite Mountain is a 7626 feet mountain located in Yavapai County, Arizona that covers roughly 12 square miles. It is located in the Granite Mountain Wilderness, which itself is in Prescott National Forest. Often lumped in with the Sierra Prieta range, Granite Mountain actually stands by itself, outside of any other range. The mountain stands at the northern end of the Sierra Prietas, and borders Skull Valley on the west, on the northwest by the Santa Maria range, and east by the Williamson Valley.
The biotic communities at Granite Mountain range from montane conifer forest and juniper pinyon woodland, to interior chaparral.
