WEIDE CREEK. Weide Creek rises two miles north of State Highway 29 in eastern Mason County (at 30°46' N, 99°01' W) and runs southeast for six miles to its mouth on Elm Creek in Llano County, a half mile east of the county line and just north of Highway 29 (at 30°44' N, 98°57' W). Rising in limestone hills on the eastern edge of the Edwards Plateau, the creek crosses an area of the Llano basin characterized by flat to rolling terrain and soils consisting chiefly of deep to shallow sandy and clayey loams. Vegetation consists primarily of scrub brush, grasses, and open stands of live oak and mesquite.
