ROCKY CREEK (FAYETTE COUNTY)
ROCKY CREEK (Fayette County). Rocky Creek rises 1½ miles northeast of the Hickory Ridge Cemetery in north central Fayette County (at 30°00' N, 96°49' W) and flows north and then west for 11½ miles to its mouth on Rabbs Creek, two miles south of Warda (at 30°02' N, 96°55' W). Throughout its course it flows through soils that range from shallow, highly erodible, sandy loam to clay and gravel. The land is marginal for agriculture and is used primarily for unimproved pasture and wildlife habitat. Vegetation along stream bottoms is a mixture of oak and cedar with scattered pines and an understory of yaupon.
