Buffalo Creek rises a half mile north of Buffalo Peak in north central Blanco County (at 30°23' N, 98°25' W) and runs southwest for 5½ miles to its mouth on the Pedernales River, 3½ miles from Johnson City (at 30°19' N, 98°27' W). The stream traverses an area of eroded limestone hills and the southeasternmost outcroppings of Paleozoic rock of the Llano Uplift. Local vegetation comprises live oak, post oak, cedar, and wild grasses; scattered areas have been made barren by timber eradication and overgrazing.
