Mountain in the eastern Sierra Nevada, elevation 3609 m, near Mount Morrison and McGee Mountain, west of Convict Lake.

Laurel Mountain is one of the best-exposed paleohydrothermal systems yet studied. Lackey and Valley (2004) evaluated fluid flow during contact metamorphism that caused wollastonite growth in calcareous metasandstones at Laurel Mountain in the Mount Morrison pendant at the eastern margin of the Sierra Nevada batholith, California.
