LIVE OAK CREEK (MEDINA COUNTY)
LIVE OAK CREEK (Medina County). Live Oak Creek rises at the junction of East and West Live Oak creeks (at 29°18' N, 99°11' W) in southwestern Medina County five miles southwest of Hondo and runs southeast for eleven miles to its mouth (at 29°13' N, 99°05' W) on Hondo Creek, eleven miles northwest of Devine. Little Live Oak Creek joins the Live Oak about a mile east of Farm Road 462. The local terrain is flat to rolling with local shallow depressions, surfaced by sandy clays and clay loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses, and, in the lower reaches, pecans and other hardwoods. For part of the stream's course the terrain is flood-prone.
