PALO PINTO MOUNTAINS. The Palo Pinto Mountains (at 32°39' N, 98°31' W) are a range extending for fifteen miles from a point in southwestern Palo Pinto County northeast to a point in the west central part of the county just south of the Brazos River. Individual peaks in the range include Sugarloaf Mountain, with an elevation of 1,462 feet above mean sea level; Antelope Mountain (1,321 feet); and Crawford Mountain (1,470 feet). The local terrain is surfaced by shallow, sandy soils with some clay, in which grow oak, juniper, and mesquite.
