SLAUGHTER CREEK. Slaughter Creek rises a mile southwest of Cedar Valley in southeastern Travis County (at 30°13' N, 97°58' W) and runs southwest for seventeen miles to its mouth on Onion Creek (at 30°09' N, 97°47' W). The terrain in the area is low-rolling to flat, with local steep slopes and benches; clay and sandy loam surfaces support juniper, oak, pecans, scrub brush, and grasses.
