    The list only covers the major, named peaks in Death Valley National Park, and does not include unnamed, but ranked summits. Also, only a few of the prominent, named benchmarks have been included. There are other named benchmarks that are not on the list.

    GV:Grapevine Mountains
    LC:Last Chance Range
    OM:Owlshead Mountains
    PA:Panamint Range
    SA:Saline Range
