The peak, with an elevation of 1,520 feet above sea level, rises 280 feet above the junction of Ranch Road 475 and Lewis Creek. It lies in an area of the Balcones Escarpment characterized by flat to rolling terrain with locally deep and dense dissection, surfaced by generally shallow to deep loams, with rock outcrops, that support live oak and Ashe juniper woods, as well as mesquite and grasses.
