ELM CREEK (Bexar County). Elm Creek rises 2½ miles west of Atascosa in southwestern Bexar County (at 29°16' N, 98°46' W) and runs southeast for seventeen miles to its mouth on the Medina River, a mile east of State Highway 16 (at 29°15' N, 98°34' W). It traverses rolling terrain surfaced by clay loams and expansive clay soils that support mesquite and grasses.
