LOS OLMOS CREEK (DUVAL COUNTY)
LOS OLMOS CREEK (Duval County). Los Olmos Creek is formed by the confluence of Agua Poquita and Concepcion creeks eight miles south of Benavides in southern Duval County (at 27°30' N, 98°27' W) and runs southeast for seventy-one miles. It traverses Jim Wells and Brooks counties, forms the line between Kleberg and Kenedy counties, and disembogues into the Laguna Salado, an inlet of Baffin Bay (at 27°16' N, 97°44' W). It is named for the Los Olmos land grant, made to Ignacio de la Peña. It traverses flat to gently rolling terrain with local shallow depressions and escarpments, surfaced by clay and sandy loams and loose sands that support scrub brush and grasses; near the mouth, marsh plants and marine grasses grow.
