MUSTANG CREEK (BELL COUNTY)
MUSTANG CREEK (Bell County). Mustang Creek rises two miles northeast of Youngsport in southwestern Bell County (at 30°58' N, 97°39' W) and runs southeast for seven miles through southern Bell County to its mouth on Salado Creek, three miles west of Salado (at 30°56' N, 97°35' W). The creek, named for the wild mustangs native to the area in the nineteenth century, flows through gently sloping to sloping and undulating to rolling terrain surfaced by gravelly, loamy and clayey soils; the area is used predominantly as rangeland.
