SANTA CLARA CREEK. Santa Clara Creek rises three miles northeast of Cibolo in western Guadalupe County (at 29°37' N, 98°12' W) and runs south for 19½ miles to its mouth on Cibolo Creek, two miles northwest of New Berlin (at 29°29' N, 98°08' W). The surrounding steep to gentle slopes have local shallow depressions and are surfaced by shallow to moderately deep clay and sandy loams that support scrub brush, grasses, and water-tolerant hardwoods and conifers.
