The Bobcat Hills begin three miles southwest of McCamey in the southwest corner of Upton County and extend across the county line into Crockett County. They are flanked by U.S. Highway 385, Farm Road 1901, and the Pecos River. Their summit (at 31°06' N, 102°16' W) has an elevation of 2,695 feet. The hills are composed of a limestone and calcareous clay substrate surfaced with shallow, stony clay loams in which grow juniper, oak, grasses, chaparral, and cacti.
