CHERRY CREEK (Kerr County). Cherry Creek rises seven miles south of State Highway 27 in southeastern Kerr County (at 29°51' N, 98°56' W) and runs north for nine miles to its mouth on the Guadalupe River, four miles east of Center Point (at 29°56' N, 98°58' W). It traverses an area characterized by rocky outcrops in the steep terraces and benches of the Balcones Escarpment, surfaced by loams that support open stands of live oak, mesquite, and Ashe juniper.
