SOUTH LEON RIVER
SOUTH LEON RIVER. The South Leon River rises in the southwestern corner of Comanche County (at 31°44' N, 98°39' W) and flows northeast for twenty-five miles, through the community of Newburg, to its mouth on the Leon River (at 31°51' N, 98°22' W). The river crosses gentle and steep slopes surfaced with shallow sandy loam and stony clay soils that support juniper, live oak, mesquite, cacti, and grasses.
