LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN (Burnet County). Lookout Mountain is a summit five miles southwest of Naruna in northwestern Burnet County (at 30°56' N, 98°21' W). It stands at an elevation of 1,585 feet above sea level, nearly 150 feet higher than the surrounding countryside. The name was probably given because of the view from the summit.
