COON MOUNTAIN. Coon Mountain is just east of State Highway 279 and two miles south of Pecan Bayou in northwest Brown County (at 31°57' N, 99°07' W). With an elevation of 1,550 feet, its summit rises 100 feet above the bayou. It is surrounded by rugged terrain and rolling prairie surfaced by clay loams that support mesquite, various grasses, and mixed hardwoods. Coon Mountain was last labeled on a 1936 county highway map.
