COYOTE CREEK (RUNNELS COUNTY)
COYOTE CREEK (Runnels County). Coyote Creek begins at the confluence of Big and Little Coyote creeks, five miles southeast of Winters in central Runnels County (at 31°53' N, 100°00' W), and runs southeast for ten miles to its mouth on Elm Creek, 3½ miles northeast of Ballinger (at 31°48' N, 99°56' W). Mesquite and grasses predominate near its upper reaches and water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses downstream. The creek rises in flat to gently rolling terrain, then runs onto land with local shallow depressions and an expansive clay surface.
