Description: COMANCHE PEAK 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 miles north ) had picnics at the peak . Boys also hunted wolves and rattlesnakes among caves and rocks on the top .
