CLEAR CREEK (Burnet County). Clear Creek rises in two branches in eastern Burnet County. The West Branch of Clear Creek rises five miles northeast of Bertram (at 30°47' N, 98°00' W) and runs southeast for three miles. The East Branch of Clear Creek rises four miles northeast of Bertram (at 30°41' N, 98°00' W) and runs southeast for four miles. The two branches converge to form Cedar Creek (at 30°46' N, 97°57' W), which runs southeast for three miles to its mouth on the North Fork of San Gabriel River, five miles north of Liberty Hill in Williamson County (at 30°45' N, 97°55' W). Surrounding steep slopes and benches are surfaced by shallow clay loams that support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses.
