ELM CREEK (Bastrop County). Elm Creek rises where Upper and Lower Elm creeks meet, east of Bateman in southwestern Bastrop County (at 29°57' N, 97°28' W), and runs northeast for 4½ miles to its mouth on Walnut Creek (at 29°59' N, 97°30' W). It traverses an upland region with loamy surface soils and post oak woods.
