SALT BRANCH (Live Oak County). Salt Branch rises six miles northwest of George West in west central Live Oak County (at 28°20' N, 98°16' W) and runs north for eight miles to its mouth on Rex Cabaniss Creek two miles southwest of Three Rivers (at 28°25' N, 98°14' W). Low rolling to flat terrain with local dissections and locally shallow depressions is surfaced by clay and sandy loams which support scrub brush, cacti, and grasses in the creek's upper reaches and water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses in its lower.
