HIGHSMITH CREEK. Highsmith Creek rises about two miles east of Kingsbury in eastern Guadalupe County (at 29°38' N, 97°48' W) and runs northeast for 8½ miles to its mouth on the San Marcos River, eight miles northeast of Kingsbury (at 29°40' N, 97°42' W). It traverses an area of rolling prairie with clay loams that support mesquite and grasses.
