MAHA CREEK. Maha Creek, also called Mayhard or Mayhew Creek, rises just north of Creedmoor in southern Travis County (at 30°04' N, 97°46' W). It runs northeast for twenty-seven miles to its mouth on Cedar Creek, ten miles west of Bastrop in Bastrop County (at 30°05' N, 97°30' W). The surrounding terrain is flat to rolling prairie, with local shallow depressions; clay and sandy loams support mesquite, cacti, and grasses in the upper reaches of the creek, and water-tolerant hardwoods and conifers in the lower reaches.
