ELM CREEK (Guadalupe County). Elm Creek rises about seven miles southwest of Seguin in southwestern Guadalupe County (at 29°30' N, 98°05' W) and runs south for fourteen miles to its mouth on Cibolo Creek, two miles east of La Vernia in Wilson County (at 29°21' N, 98°05' W). It traverses generally flat to rolling terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
