SYCAMORE CREEK (UVALDE COUNTY)
SYCAMORE CREEK (Uvalde County). Sycamore Creek rises five miles east of Montell in northwestern Uvalde County (at 29°31' N, 99°55' W) and runs southwest for eleven miles before emptying into the Nueces River seven miles southeast of Montell in northwest Uvalde County (at 29°26' N, 100 W). The vegetation along its course varies; grasses, juniper, live oak, and mesquite flourish upstream, and sparse grasses and scrub brush characterize the lengthier lower section. The creek rises in terrain with steep slopes and benches, then enters steep to gently sloping terrain. The soils in the upper section are shallow and gravelly, loamy, and clayey; downstream the soils are shallow and stony, clayey and loamy.
