BIG SANDY CREEK (TRAVIS COUNTY)
BIG SANDY CREEK (Travis County). Big Sandy Creek, sometimes called Sandy Creek, begins two miles northeast of the Round Mountain community in northwestern Travis County (at 30°36' N, 97°55' W) and runs south for twelve miles to its mouth on Lake Travis, just east of Jonestown (at 30°30' N, 97°55' W). It crosses an area of steep slopes and benches surfaced by shallow clay loams that support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses.
