Jim John Creek rises about fourteen miles east of Cherokee in southeastern San Saba County (at 30°59' N, 98°29' W) and runs east for two miles to its mouth on the Colorado River (at 30°58' N, 98°27' W). The creek, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses generally flat terrain with localized dissection. Area vegetation consists primarily of Ashe juniper, live oak, and grasses, growing in stony and shallow clayey soil.
