WILLOW CREEK (Gillespie County). Willow Creek rises two miles north of State Highway 16 in central Gillespie County (at 30°22' N, 98°48' W). Intermittent in its upper reaches, the stream follows an easterly course for fourteen miles to its mouth on North Grape Creek, three miles east of Farm Road 1631 (at 30°22' N, 98°38' W). The creek rises in the hills of the eastern Edwards Plateau and crosses into an area of the Central Basinqv, flat to rolling terrain surfaced by shallow loamy and clayey soils that support grasses and open stands of live oak, mesquite, and Ashe juniper.
