SWINE CREEK

SWINE CREEK. Swine Creek rises near Devil's Hill in western Comal County (at 29°49' N, 98°27' W) and flows northeast for eight miles to its mouth on the Guadalupe River, a mile southwest of Spring Branch (at 29°51' N, 98°24' W). Its course crosses an area of the Balcones Escarpment characterized by steep slopes and limestone benches that give a stairstep appearance to the landscape. Soil in the area is generally dark, calcareous stony clay and clay loam with rock outcroppings, and vegetation consists primarily of live oak and Ashe juniper woods.
