HURST CREEK. Hurst Creek rises two miles northwest of Bee Caves in western Travis County (at 30°19' N, 98°01' W) and runs northeast for 5½ miles to its mouth on Lake Travis, twelve miles northwest of Austin (at 30°22' N, 97°58' W). It traverses an area of steep slopes and benches, surfaced by shallow clay loams that support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses.
