MUSTANG CREEK (Hamilton County). Mustang Creek rises three miles south of Hamilton in central Hamilton County (at 31°39' N, 98°07' W) and runs southeast for twenty-two miles to its mouth (at 31°31' N, 97°56' W) on Plum Creek in Coryell County. On the 1936 county highway map Plum Creek appears as a tributary of Mustang Creek, and Mustang Creek flows into the Leon River. Initially the stream passes through flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments, surfaced by deep, fine, sandy loam that supports brush and grasses. Later in the course of the creek the terrain becomes more rugged, with steep slopes and benches surfaced by shallow clay loam that supports juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses. The land is used as range.
