Mount Emmons is a mountain located in Franklin County, New York. The mountain is named after Ebenezer Emmons (1799–1863), a geologist who named the Adirondack Mountains and led the first recorded ascent of Mount Marcy in 1837. The mountain is part of the Seward Mountains of the Adirondacks. Mount Emmons is flanked to the north by Donaldson Mountain. Emmons is the westernmost of the 46 High Peaks.

Mount Emmons stands within the watershed of the Cold River, which drains into the Raquette River, the Saint Lawrence River in Canada, and into the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. The east side of Mt. Emmons drains into Seward Brook, thence into the Cold River. The west side of Emmons drains into Boulder Brook, thence into the Cold River.
