The Adobe Range is a minor mountain range of Nevada. Located northwest and north of Elko, Nevada, it runs generally north-south for about 30 mi (50 km), and has an area of about 800 km². Its highest point is an unnamed summit of 8,134 ft (2,480 m); the named peaks are Sherman Peak (7,522 ft) and The Buttes (6,674 ft).

The vegetation of the range is primarily sagebrush steppe. Various intermittent creeks feed the Humboldt River, which borders the range to the south and east.

Ownership is about half private, and half Bureau of Land Management. Suburbs of Elko back up to the southern part of the Adobes, where the ski area Elko Snobowl is located. Several coal mines are to be found in the northern part of the range.

The Adobe Range is a newly-developed climbing area, with routes on conglomerate rock ranging from YDS 5.6 to 5.10.
