LONE MAN MOUNTAIN. Lone Man Mountain is five miles southwest of Driftwood and six miles north of Wimberley in central Hays County (at 30°05' N, 98°05' W). The elevation of its summit is 1,421 feet above sea level. The mountain stands in a part of the Edwards Plateau primarily characterized by a stairstep terrain of steep slopes and limestone benches surfaced by shallow, sometimes stony, clay and loam soils that support grasses and juniper, live oak, and mesquite trees.
