ROCKY CREEK (BURNET COUNTY)
ROCKY CREEK (Burnet County). Rocky Creek rises in two branches in northern Burnet County. North Rocky Creek begins sixteen miles northeast of Burnet (at 30°57' N, 98°08' W) and flows east for twelve miles. South Rocky Creek begins thirteen miles northeast of Burnet (at 30°57' N, 98°10' W) and flows east for sixteen miles. Rocky Creek proper begins where the two branches converge (at 30°56' N, 97°59' W) and flows northeast for seven miles to its mouth on the Lampasas River, one mile north of Oakalla (at 31°00' N, 97°56' W). The terrain in the stream's upper reaches is characterized by steep slopes and benches but is generally flat with local shallow depressions in the middle and lower reaches; the soil ranges from shallow, clay loams to clay and sandy loams. The vegetation in the upper reaches consists primarily of juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses, and water-tolerant hardwoods and conifers are typical of the middle and lower reaches.
