COLD CREEK. Cold Creek rises eighteen miles southwest of San Saba in southwest San Saba County (at 30°58' N, 98°56' W) and runs south for eleven miles to its mouth on San Fernando Creek, at the southern foot of Smoothingiron Mountain in Llano County (at 30°50' N, 98°55' W). It traverses flat to rolling terrain, locally dissected, surfaced by sandy and clay loams that support open stands of live oak and mesquite.
