LITTLE LLANO RIVER. The Little Llano River, sometimes referred to as Little Llano Creek, rises five miles southeast of Cherokee in southern San Saba County (at 30°57' N, 98°40' W) and runs southeast for fifteen miles to its mouth on the Llano River, two miles south of Lone Grove (at 30°47' N, 98°34' W). It traverses an area of the Llano Basin characterized by flat to rolling terrain, locally dissected and covered by soils ranging from sandy to clay loams. Vegetation consists primarily of open stands of live oak and mesquite. The stream is fed by numerous tributaries.
