CEDAR CREEK (Fayette County). Cedar Creek rises south of Farm Road 609 and a mile southwest of O'Quinn in west central Fayette County (at 29°48' N, 97°00' W) and runs northwest for five miles to its mouth on Buckner's Creek (at 29°51' N, 97°01' W). It cuts through rolling hills surfaced by fine sandy and clay loams that support oak and cedar with a dense understory of yaupon that provides good wildlife habitat. The eroded stream banks are quite steep and sometimes reach heights of thirty feet or more above the water. In open areas the stream provides water for cattle.
