BUFFALO CREEK (San Saba County). Buffalo Creek rises eight miles northwest of Cherokee in southern San Saba County (at 31°00' N, 98°52' W) and runs northeast for twenty miles to its mouth on Cherokee Creek (at 31°02' N, 98°40' W). The creek is intermittent in its upper reaches. It crosses an area of flat to gently rolling uplands with clayey and sandy loam soils in which grow live oak, Ashe juniper, mesquite, and grasses.
