KINCHELO CREEK. Kinchelo Creek, a spring-fed stream, rises 1½ miles west of Horsethief Cove and six miles northeast of Lometa in northern Lampasas County (at 31°16' N, 98°18' W) and runs northeast for 15½ miles to its mouth on Simms Creek, seven miles southeast of Moline (at 31°18' N, 98°14' W). It crosses an area of the Grand Prairies characterized by steep slopes and limestone benches, which often give a stairstep appearance to the landscape along streams. Shallow clay loams support grasses and open stands of live oak, mesquite, and juniper in the area.
