SANDY FORK. Sandy Fork rises five miles southeast of Elm Grove in eastern Caldwell County near the Bastrop county line (at 29°52' N, 97°26' W) and runs for forty miles, southwest across eastern Caldwell County and then southeast after entering Gonzales County, to its mouth on Peach Creek, ten miles south of Waedler (at 29°34' N, 97°17' W). The surrounding flat to rolling prairie has local dissections and escarpments and is surfaced by clay and fine, sandy loams that support hardwood pine, scrub brush, and grasses.
