LOST CREEK (DeWitt County). Lost Creek rises in central DeWitt County (at 29°04' N, 97°22' W) four miles southwest of Cuero and runs northeast, then south, for a total of 4½ miles before reaching its mouth (at 29°05' N, 97°20' W) on the Guadalupe River, two miles southwest of Cuero. It traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by mud, sands, and gravels that support grasses, water-tolerant hardwoods, and conifers.
