COW CREEK (BURNET COUNTY)
COW CREEK (Burnet County). Cow Creek rises eight miles southeast of Burnet in southeast central Burnet County (at 30°40' N, 98°09' W) and runs southeast for twenty-one miles to its mouth on Lake Travis, a mile above Lago Vista in Travis County (at 30°29' N, 98°01' W). The creek, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses generally flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments and steep slopes and benches. Local soils of shallow clay and sandy loams support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses.
