LEOPARD CREEK (McMullen County). Leopard Creek rises nineteen miles south of Tilden in south central McMullen County (at 28°10' N, 98°34' W) and runs north for nine miles to its mouth on the Nueces River, eleven miles south of Tilden (at 28°18' N, 98°34' W). It initially traverses low-rolling to flat terrain with local dissections, then descends to flat terrain with locally shallow depressions. Deep to shallow clay and sandy loams support scrub brush, cacti, and grasses in the creek's upper reaches and water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses in its lower reaches.
