Prominent Indian and pioneer landmark. Actually a mesa, the peak rises 1,229 feet (above sea level) may have had ceremonial value for local tribes or have been a look-out point for game and enemies. A Comanche trail crossed county in this vicinity in 1846. Whites and Indians en route to the so-called "Peak" for a meeting almost failed to find it because of its flat top. Later settlers held dances here and students from Add-Ran College (about 10 mi. N.) had picnics at the Peak. Boys also hunted wolves and rattlesnakes among caves and rocks on the top.
