RINARD CREEK. Rinard Creek rises a mile southeast of Turnersville in southern Travis County (at 30°05' N, 97°46' W) and runs north for six miles to its mouth on Onion Creek, two miles east of Manchaca (at 30°09' N, 97°47' W). Flat to rolling prairie in the area is surfaced by dark, calcareous clays that support mesquite, cacti, and grasses.
