DONALDSON MOUNTAIN. Donaldson Mountain is seven miles southeast of Hughes Springs in southwestern Cass County (at 32°59' N, 94°30' W). This small but generally steep peak, located in a relatively low marshy area just east of Black Cypress Creek, rises from an area 225 feet above mean sea level to 405 feet above mean sea level at its highest point. The soils in the area are sandy and loamy, and the land is heavily wooded, primarily with pines and various hardwoods.
