Babyhead Mountain is ten miles north of Llano in northern Llano County (at 30°54' N, 98°40' W). A baby's skull was reportedly found there. The summit, with an elevation of 1,627 feet, rises 200 feet above State Highway 16 to the northeast. The surrounding terrain is flat to rolling, with local dissection, and surfaced by sandy and clay loams that support open stands of live oak and mesquite.
