Mountain City is a small unincorporated community in Elko County, Nevada, United States, within the Mountain City Ranger District of the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest. This ghost town[1] on State Route 225, approximately 16 miles (26 km) south of the Idaho border, is situated on the Owyhee River at an elevation of approximately 5,620 feet (1,710 m).

Mountain City, along with the rest of Nevada except for the city of West Wendover, is legally in the Pacific Time Zone,[2] but, along with other Idaho border towns such as Jackpot, Jarbidge and Owyhee, unofficially observes the Mountain Time Zone due to closer proximity to and greater connections with towns in southern Idaho.[3]
