ROCKY CREEK (Washington County). Rocky Creek rises two miles south of Independence in north central Washington County (at 30°18' N, 96°22' W) and runs southeast for eleven miles to its mouth on New Year Creek, one half mile east of Petersville Church (at 30°12' N, 96°13' W). The creek is intermittent in its upper reaches. Gently sloping to level terrain in the area is surfaced by clay that supports grass and scattered post oak motts.
