5500 feet elevation in the south, then drop into Little Valley, 5000 feet elevation. Then increase
to 6800 feet before decreasing again. On the eastside the Promontory Mountains are cut by
Maple canyon, 4200 feet to 5000 feet and Cellar Canyon, 4200 feet to 5400 feet elevation. On
the west side. Long Canyon, 4200 feet to 6200 feet; and Brushy Canyon, 5400 feet to 5800 feet,
cut the mountains. The most common elevation is 4300 feet but ranges from 4200 feet to 7000 feet with an elevation difference of 2800 feet. Fifty-three percent (53%) of the CWMU elevation ranges between 4900 feet and 6300 feet an elevation difference of 1400 feet.
Over seventy percent of the Promontory Point Cooperative Wildlife Management Unit (CWMU) is a combination of Inter-Mountain Basins Big Sagebrush Shrubland (48), Great Basin Pinyon- Juniper (37), and Invasive Annual Grassland (121). Invasive Annual Grasslands and Big Sage-brush Shrubland and at the lower elevations, and Pinyon-Juniper are at the higher elevations. There are areas of Inter-Mountain Basins Semi-Desert Grassland (76) and areas of Invasive Annual and Biennial Forbland (122).
