CEDAR TOP PEAK
CEDAR TOP PEAK. Cedar Top Peak, 5½ miles northwest of Lampasas in south central Lampasas County (at 31°07' N, 98°15' W), is said to have been named for the numerous cedar trees that grow on its slopes. At an elevation of 1,517 feet above sea level, its summit rises 150 feet above nearby U.S. Highway 183/190. It stands in an area of the Grand Prairie characterized by steep slopes and limestone benches, that give a stairstep appearance to the landscape. Shallow clay loams support grasses and open stands of live oak, mesquite, and Ashe juniper.
