WOOD HOLLOW MOUNTAINS. The Wood Hollow Mountains are four miles southeast of Marathon in northeastern Brewster County (their center point is 30°08' N, 103°11' W). The highest peak rises 4,661 feet above sea level, some 710 feet above U.S. Highway 385, one mile to the west. The Wood Hollow Mountains extend eight miles from the northeast to the southwest and are 2½ miles wide. Their surface of shallow, stony soils or dark, commonly calcareous clays supports live oak, piñon, juniper, mesquite, grasses, and cacti.
