Mitre Peak is a very prominent conical intrusive mass which comes into view a few miles North of Alpine on highway 118 on the drive toward Fort Davis. It juts up about 1,800 feet from the surrounding valley, and is one of the higher peaks in the immediate region. The summit affords views of Marfa, Alpine, and Fort Davis all at once, which is a rare view from any mountain in the area. The peak itself is a couple of miles West of the highway before you enter Musquiz Canyon (if traveling North).

Please post pictures if you have any. The only digitial picture I have is attached, but it's taken from 20 miles away. I will scan the old summit photos from 1990 pretty soon and attach those as well.

Getting There

10 miles North-Northwest of Alpine, just West of highway 118.

Red Tape

Private land - not accessible to the public except with permission. To my knowledge, permission is not generally given. I was able to climb the peak in 1990, but am told that this is no longer possible.


Davis Mountains State Park is about 20 minutes to the North: http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/spdest/findadest/parks/davis_mountains
