MUD CREEK (Kinney County). Mud Creek rises four miles southeast of the intersection of Farm roads 2523 and 3008 in northwestern Kinney County (at 29°28' N, 100°36' W) and runs southwest for twenty-two miles to its mouth on Sycamore Creek, at the Val Verde county line (at 29°16' N, 100°45' W). It initially traverses steep to gently sloping terrain surfaced by expansive clays that support sparse growths of scrub brush and various grasses; in its middle stretches the creek passes through flat terrain with locally shallow depressions, surfaced by clays that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and various grasses. Toward the creek's mouth it runs through flat to rolling terrain surfaced by alluvial deposits that support mesquite and various grasses.
