HICKORY CREEK (Llano County). Hickory Creek rises four miles south of the town of Prairie Mountain in southwestern Llano County (at 30°30' N, 98°54' W). Its generally broad, sandy bed runs north for 19½ miles to its mouth on the Llano River, nine miles west of Llano (at 30°43' N, 98°49' W). The stream, which is fed by numerous tributaries, traverses an area of the Llano basin in which flat to rolling terrain with some local dissection is surfaced by sandy to clayey loams that support open stands of live oak and mesquite.
