FLAT CREEK (McLennan County). Flat Creek rises within the western city limits of Hewitt in south central McLennan County (at 31°29' N, 97°13' W) and runs east for twelve miles to its mouth on the Brazos River, four miles east of Robinson (at 31°30' N, 97°03' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses flat to rolling prairie with locally steep slopes, surfaced by expansive clays and clay loams that support juniper, oak, mesquite, and grasses in the creek's upper and middle reaches and water-tolerant hardwoods and conifers in its lower.
