French John Creek rises near the intersection of State Highway 29 and Ranch Road 1431 in eastern Llano County (at 30°44' N, 98°27' W) and runs southwest for four miles to its mouth on Pennington Creek, 1½ miles west of the intersection of Ranch roads 1431 and 3404 (at 30°42' N, 98°29' W). The stream traverses an area of the Llano basin characterized by flat to rolling terrain with local dissections, surfaced by sandy to clay loam soils that support open stands of live oak and mesquite.
