TURNEY PEAK. Turney Peak is thirty-five miles southwest of Alpine and one mile east of the Presidio county line in west central Brewster County (at 29°51' N, 103°47' W). At an elevation of 4,854 feet above sea level, it rises some 1,070 feet above the O2 Ranch, two miles to the east. Shallow, stony soils on the mountain support live oak, piñon pine, juniper, and grasses. The peak was named for William Ward Turney, who established a ranch in the area in 1888.
