ROSITA CREEK (Duval County). Rosita Creek rises three miles south of Freer in northern Duval County (at 27°51' N, 98°36' W) and runs southeast for twenty-seven miles to its mouth on San Diego Creek in eastern Duval County (at 27°45' N, 98°15' W). It traverses flat to rolling terrain with local shallow depressions and escarpments, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, scrub brush, and grasses.
