RUSSELL FORK OF THE SAN GABRIEL RIVER
RUSSELL FORK OF THE SAN GABRIEL RIVER. The Russell Fork (or Middle Fork) of the San Gabriel River rises in central Burnet County (at 30°51' N, 98°14' W) four miles northwest of Burnet and runs east for twenty miles to its mouth (at 30°49' N, 98°00' W) on the North Fork of the San Gabriel River, six miles northeast of Bertram. The stream runs through an area of steep slopes and benches, surfaced by shallow clay loams that support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses.
