LION MOUNTAIN. Lion Mountain is a summit half a mile north of Farm Road 690 and ten miles northwest of Burnet in western Burnet County (at 30°49' N, 98°22' W). It overlooks Lake Buchanan and stands at an elevation of 1,265 feet above sea level, more than 150 feet higher than the surrounding countryside. The peak was named for a cougar that was killed there in the early days of settlement.
