SQUIRREL CREEK (Medina County). Squirrel Creek rises at the junction of West and East Squirrel creeks ten miles west of Yancey in southwest Medina County (at 29°09' N, 99°17' W) and runs southeast ten miles to its mouth on Seco Creek, in northwestern Frio County (at 29°04' N, 99°11' W). East Squirrel Creek runs fourteen miles and West Squirrel Creek sixteen miles before joining to form Squirrel Creek. The area has flat terrain with local shallow depressions and is surfaced by expansive clays with variable permeability that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
