COTTONWOOD CREEK (Hays County). Cottonwood Creek, intermittent in its upper reaches, rises a mile northeast of Hunter in the southern tip of Hays County (at 29°51' N, 98°01' W) and runs southeast for seventeen miles to its mouth on York Creek, four miles north of Kingsbury in Guadalupe County (at 29°44' N, 97°52' W). It runs through clay and shale based soils that support the cultivation of food and fiber crops.
