CUTOFF MOUNTAIN. Cutoff (Cut Off) Mountain, ten miles east of Hamilton in eastern Hamilton County (at 31°44' N, 97°57' W), has an elevation of 1,280 feet above sea level. It is separated by a narrow valley from a range of low peaks to the east; this separation is probably the origin of its name. Soils in the area are clay and clay loams and support oak, juniper, and grasses.
