RUSTLER HILLS. The Rustler Hills are two miles west of the Rustler Springs sulfur plant in northeastern Culberson County (with a center point of 31°41' N, 104°11' W). They stretch ten miles from north to south. The highest elevation in the range rises 3,841 feet above sea level. The area's steep to gentle slopes are surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support scrub brush, creosote bush, cacti, and grasses. One newspaperman described the Rustler Hills as "a series of limestone-capped, dome-shaped and very barren elevations."
