ECLETO CREEK. Ecleto (Eclato) Creek rises nine miles south of Seguin in southern Guadalupe County (at 29°26' N, 97°57' W) and runs southeast for seventy-two miles to its mouth on the San Antonio River, two miles west of Runge in Karnes County (at 28°59' N, 97°45' W). The local terrain is generally flat to rolling with local escarpments, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support vegetation ranging from scrub brush and cacti to water-tolerant hardwoods and conifers.
