JUANITA CREEK (DUVAL COUNTY)
JUANITA CREEK (Duval County). Juanita Creek rises eleven miles northwest of Freer in northwestern Duval County (at 28°00' N, 98°44' W) and runs northwest, across southwestern McMullen County, for twelve miles to its mouth on the Nueces River, near the southeastern boundary of La Salle County (at 28°06' N, 98°48' W). The creek rises in low-rolling terrain and descends to flat terrain with locally shallow depressions. The local clay and sandy loam soils support grasses, mesquite, chaparral, conifers, and water-tolerant hardwoods.
