Idiot's Hill starts just east of Bell Avenue at University Drive and includes the area bounded by Sherman Drive, Kings Row, Loop 288, and University Drive. The name has many rumored origins, including that the original development in the 1950s was built on top of an old landfill, that the sandy soil and rolling hills of the area would cause foundation problems for anyone foolish to build there, that the houses in Idiot's Hill were roughly twice the price of comparable houses being constructed at the same time on the south side of Denton, and that a large number of professors working at TWU and UNT nee NTSU lived in the neighborhood.

The neighborhood features heavy tree coverage and rolling hills, with the neighborhood elementary school and parks forming a pedestrian friendly pathway through the central neighborhood.
