GRIFFIN CREEK. Griffin Creek rises about a half mile west of Farm Road 674 and twenty miles north of Brackettville in far northern Kinney County (at 29°37' N, 100°25' W) and runs southeast for nine miles to its mouth on the West Nueces River, near the private airport on the Delong Ranch in north central Kinney County (at 29°34' N, 100°21' W). The stream rises in flat terrain with locally deep and dense dissection, surfaced by soils with high slope stability and low to high permeability. Vegetation throughout the creek's course consists of oak, juniper, mesquite, and various grasses.
