LOAFER CREEK. Loafer Creek rises 1½ miles south of the McCulloch county line in north central Mason County (at 30°55' N, 99°11' W) and runs northeast for eight miles to its mouth on Tiger Creek, one mile southeast of Voca in McCulloch County (at 31°00' N, 99°10' W). Rising in limestone hills on the eastern edge of the Edwards Plateau, the creek crosses an area of the Llano basin characterized by flat to rolling terrain and soils consisting chiefly of deep to shallow sandy and clayey loams; the stream's course occasionally runs through areas of hilly terrain characterized by thinner, stony soils. Vegetation consists primarily of scrub brush and grasses and open stands of live oak, mesquite, and Ashe juniper.
