HIGHHILL CREEK. Highhill Creek rises three miles northeast of La Grange in central Fayette County (at 29°57' N, 96°50' W) and runs south for four miles to its mouth on the Colorado River, two miles east of La Grange (at 29°54' N, 96°50' W). The surrounding rolling to steep terrain is surfaced by dark clay loam that supports chaparral and grasses.
