Buffalo Peak, six miles north of Johnson City in north central Blanco County (at 30°22' N, 98°25' W), rises 1,660 feet above sea level. The surrounding Edwards Plateau area is characterized by level to gently rolling uplands and ridges marked by steep slopes and limestone benches, which give a stairstep appearance to the landscape. The soil surface is shallow, stony, and clayey. The local vegetation comprises grasses and open stands of live oak and Ashe juniper.
