QUIHI CREEK. Quihi Creek rises (at 29°31' N, 98°58' W) in northern Medina County two miles southwest of Mico and runs southwest for seventeen miles to its mouth (at 29°22' N, 99°03' W) on Verde Creek, a mile north of Highway 90 West and two miles southwest of Quihi. Tributaries Elm Creek and First Creek join it in the town of Quihi. Quihi Creek initially traverses flat terrain with locally deep and dense dissection; towards its mouth the terrain becomes gently to steeply sloping. The soil varies in permeability and supports oak, juniper, grasses, and some mesquite near the source and scrub brush and grasses near the mouth.
