INDIAN CREEK (Edwards County). Indian Creek rises at Rock Springs in central Edwards County (at 30°00' N, 100°13' W) and runs southwest for twenty-two miles to its mouth on the West Nueces River (at 29°47' N, 100°24' W). The area terrain is flat to steep with local depressions and deep, dense dissection. It is surfaced by shallow clay loams that support scrub brush, grasses, oak, juniper, and mesquite. The creek was named for a nearby Indian battle.
