Drive on FM2325 between Blanco and Wimberly to a point just east of the Blanco county line. Drive north
on CR338 for 1.4 miles to Montell Road, which is CR339.
Where the topo shows a road leading to the ridge from just east of this junction, we found a house just north
of Montel Road, posted property with no one home. It was difficult to tell if there was really a road leading
to the ridge. Just west of the junction, however, you can find a road, unfenced, unposted, leading to the
ridge crest near the county line. It becomes difficult for 4WD, so it's best to walk. On the ridge crest there
is an old stone marker showing the boundary of the two counties. This makes it easy to get to the high point
of this area in Hays county.
From the map it looks like an easy walk to the other two high areas. It's not, but we proved it can be done.
The brush is very thick, but there are a few paths and openings. We found it necessary to backtrack several
times to find a better route.
The northeastern area does have a cleared portion at the top. Southwest of that, there is a fence line leading
south that is cleared on it's eastern side. This makes a good descent route and could be a better approach to
the northeast area.
