DEVIL'S TOENAIL

DEVIL'S TOENAIL. The Devil's Toenail, an elevation, stands a mile west of Click in southern Llano County (at 30°33' N, 98°37' W). Its summit, at an elevation of 1,490 feet above sea level, rises 350 feet above Sandy Creek. A dramatic, 200-foot sandstone escarpment on its west face above the creek is the "toenail." The local terrain is flat to rolling, locally dissected, and surfaced by sandy and clay loam soils that support open stands of live oak and mesquite.
