LONE MOUNTAIN (Llano County). Lone Mountain stands five miles southeast of Oxford in southern Llano County (at 30°32' N, 98°39' W). At an elevation of 1,570 feet, the summit rises 500 feet above nearby Sandy Creek. The elongated, steep-sided elevation stands in an area of the Llano Basin characterized by rolling terrain with deep and dense dissection, surfaced by deep and fine to shallow and stony sandy loams that support open stands of live oak, mesquite, and Ashe juniper.
