BUCK CREEK (Frio County). Buck Creek rises a mile northwest of the intersection of U.S. Highway 81 and Farm Road 76 in north central Frio County (at 29°03' N, 99°03' W) and runs southwest for twenty-eight miles to its mouth on the Frio River, two miles west of Derby (at 28°46' N, 99°10' W). It crosses an area of flat terrain and low rolling hills with steep margins, surfaced by clay and sandy loams in which grow grasses, dwarf evergreen oaks, mesquite, pecan, willow, water-tolerant hardwoods, and conifers.
