Cap Mountain stands six miles southeast of Llano in eastern Llano County (at 30°43' N, 98°35' W). Its summit, at an elevation of 1,376 feet above sea level, rises some 250 feet above the terrain below. The surrounding area is variously flat to rolling to steep, covered by soils ranging from shallow and stony to deep, fine sandy loams. Local vegetation consists primarily of open stands of live oak and mesquite.
