LOST FORK OF GOLDENROD CREEK. The Lost Fork of Goldenrod Creek rises on the county line between Lavaca and Colorado counties (at 29°19' N, 96°36' W) and runs south for seven miles to its mouth on Goldenrod Creek, west of Farm Road 710, south of Farm Road 1300, and just northeast of the Jackson county line in extreme western Wharton County (at 29°13' N, 96°34' W). It crosses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
