MUSTANG CANYON. Mustang Canyon, a break in the Anacacho Mountains in southeastern Kinney County, originates on the southern side of the mountains (at 29°13' N, 100°09' W) and runs for three miles. An intermittent stream runs through the canyon and continues south beyond Mustang Canyon's mouth (at 29°11' N, 100°11' W) and into Maverick County. At an elevation of 1,250 feet above sea level near its origin, the canyon floor is situated 175 feet below a nearby mountain peak.
