SOUTH WALNUT CREEK. South Walnut Creek rises two miles east of Owensville in west central Robertson County (at 31°04' N, 96°30' W) and runs west and then southwest thirteen miles to its mouth on Walnut Creek four miles north of Calvert (at 31°02' N, 96°40' W). The creek is intermittent in its upper reaches, but becomes continuous. It crosses sloping terrain surfaced by sandy and clay loam that supports post oak woods, forest, and grassland mosaics.
