BULLHEAD CREEK (REAL COUNTY)

BULLHEAD CREEK (Real County). Bullhead Creek, a spring-fed stream, rises in the upper elevations of the divide separating the Nueces and Frio canyons in central Real County (at 29°50' N, 99°51' W) and runs west for twenty miles, passing to the southeast of Bullhead Mountain, before joining the Nueces River just below Vance, formerly Bullhead (at 29°49' N, 100°01' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It winds down the eastern side of the Nueces canyon over a bed of limestone, gravel, and calcareous soil. The surroundings are typical of the heavily dissected canyonlands of the Balcones Escarpment on the southern edge of the Edwards Plateau. The region is forested with open stands of live oak, mesquite, and Ashe juniper.
