POOR HOLLOW. Poor Hollow is an intermittent stream that rises sixteen miles northeast of Eldorado in east central Schleicher County (at 30°59' N, 100°22' W) and runs southeast for seventeen miles to its mouth on the North Valley Prong of the San Saba River, six miles southeast of Adams (at 30°52' N, 100°13' W). It traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
