SHARP MOUNTAIN. Sharp Mountain stands 4½ miles southeast of Llano in central Llano County (at 30°41' N, 98°39' W). Gold mining has been attempted at the mountain but with no significant result. At an elevation of 1,594 feet, the summit rises approximately 400 feet above the adjacent terrain. Local topography ranges from flat to rolling to steep; the terrain is locally dissected and covered with soils that vary from shallow and stony to sandy and clay loams. Vegetation consists primarily of open stands of live oak, mesquite, and Ashe juniper.
