TORO CREEK (Duval County). Toro Creek rises thirteen miles northwest of San Diego in northeastern Duval County (at 27°55' N, 98°20' W) and runs southeast for twelve miles to its mouth on Muerto Creek, five miles northeast of San Diego in western Jim Wells County (at 27°50' N, 98°11' W). It traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, rolling hills, and local escarpments, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, grasses, and some scrub brush.
