TIMBER MOUNTAIN. Timber Mountain is eighteen miles northwest of Fort Davis in northeastern Jeff Davis County (at 30°50' N, 103°57' W). It rises to an elevation of 6,447 feet above sea level, some 2,000 feet above the Buffalo Trail Scout Camp at the end of Farm Road 1832, two miles south. Shallow, stony soils on the mountain support Douglas fir, aspen, Arizona cypress, maple, ponderosa pine, and madrone.
