CEDAR CREEK (Fort Bend County). Cedar Creek rises four miles southwest of Needville in southern Fort Bend County (at 29°21' N, 95°54' W) and runs southeast for twelve miles, through southern Fort Bend and western Brazoria counties, to its mouth on the San Bernard River, two miles north of Danciger (at 29°14' N, 95°48' W). It crosses variable to flat terrain surfaced by clay that supports mixed hardwoods and pines along the creek's upper reaches and water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and a variety of prairie grasses toward its mouth.
