LITTLE SANDY CREEK (Bastrop County). Little Sandy Creek rises just southwest of Elgin in northern Bastrop County (at 30°20' N, 97°23' W) and flows south, then southeast, for nine miles through the county to its mouth on Big Sandy Creek (at 30°14' N, 97°20' W). The stream travels through an upland area of nearly level to strongly sloping terrain, surfaced by loam and sandy soil that supports post oak woods and croplands.
