NORTH GRAPE CREEK. North Grape Creek rises one mile east of State Highway 16 in central Gillespie County (at 30°21' N, 98°46' W). Intermittent in its upper reaches, the stream follows an easterly course for twenty-six miles to its mouth on the Pedernales River, northwest of Johnson City in western Blanco County (at 30°19' N, 98°30 W). Rising in the hills of the eastern Edwards Plateau and crossing into the Central Basin, North Grape Creek passes through an area of flat to rolling terrain surfaced by sandy to clayey loams that support grasses, scrub brush, and open stands of live oak, mesquite, and Ashe juniper.
