ROCKY CREEK (COLORADO COUNTY)
ROCKY CREEK (Colorado County). Rocky Creek rises in north central Colorado County (at 29°49' N, 96°38' W) and runs south for eleven miles, crossing State Highway 329 and Farm Road 1890, to its mouth on the Colorado River, four miles upriver from Columbus (at 29°43' N, 96°35' W). Along the course of the creek the land is predominantly flat with some shallow depressions. The soil is loamy on the surface with mottled grey and red clay subsoil and a substrate of sand, gravel, mud, and some bedrock. Hardwoods, conifers, and some grasses grow along the creekbed.
