STEVENS CREEK (GILLESPIE COUNTY)
STEVENS CREEK (Gillespie County). Stevens Creek, the western extension of which was formerly known as Scott Branch, rises 1½ miles north of Interstate Highway 10 in southwestern Gillespie County (at 30°12' N, 99°16' W). The intermittent stream flows northeast for 4½ miles to its mouth on Klein Branch, 1½ miles east of Farm Road 783 (at 30°14' N, 99°13' W). Rising in the hills of the eastern Edwards Plateau, Stevens Creek crosses an area characterized by flat terrain and shallow clayey and loamy soils; vegetation consists primarily of grasses and open stands of live oak, mesquite, and Ashe juniper.
