LITTLE TWIN SISTERS PEAKS. The Little Twin Sisters Peaks are two miles northwest of Wimberley in southwestern Hays County (at 30°01' N, 98°07' W). The elevation of the two summits is approximately 1,219 feet above sea level. They stand in an area of the Edwards Plateau generally characterized by stairstep topography with steep slopes and benches. The soils, primarily shallow clay loams, sometimes stony or gravelly, support grasses, juniper, mesquite, and live oak.
