Cedar Creek rises seven miles southwest of Segovia in southern Kimble County (at 30°19' N, 99°42' W) and runs northwest for 14½ miles to its mouth on Lake Junction, on the south Llano River opposite the Junction city limit (at 30°23' N, 99°45' W). The creek is generally free-flowing for six miles upstream from its mouth. Its only major tributary is intermittent Dry Cedar Creek, which joins Cedar Creek two miles south of Junction. The local flat terrain has deep and dense dissection and is surfaced by shallow soils that support oak, juniper, grasses, and some mesquite.
