SILVER CREEK (Llano County). Silver Creek rises four miles west of Oxford in central Llano County (at 30°36' N, 98°38' W) and runs south for five miles to its mouth on Sandy Creek, three miles from the intersection of State Highway 16 and Ranch Road 965 (at 30°33' N, 98°40' W). It traverses an area of the Llano Basin characterized by flat to rolling terrain with locally deep and dense dissection, covered with generally shallow and stony soils. Vegetation consists primarily of open stands of live oak and mesquite.
