PLUM CREEK (Hamilton County). Plum Creek rises (at 31°38' N, 98°07' W) in Hamilton County four miles from Hamilton and runs southeast for twenty miles to its mouth (at 31°29' N, 97°49' W) on the Leon River, six miles northwest of Gatesville in Coryell County. Initially the creek passes through terrain of steep slopes and benches, surfaced by shallow clay loams that support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses. Nearer the mouth of the creek the terrain becomes flat with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clayey and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
