Tecumseh Peak, a mile northwest of Oplin in the southwestern part of Callahan County (at 32°09' N, 99°35' W), has an elevation of 2,228 feet. The surrounding terrain is flat to rolling, surfaced by deep, fine, sandy loams that support brush and grasses. The mountain was named for a famous nineteenth-century Shawnee Indian chief of the eastern United States.
