CYPRESS CREEK (Kerr County). Cypress Creek rises 1½ miles east of State Highway 16 in northeastern Kerr County (at 30°06' N, 99°03' W) and runs southeast for nineteen miles to its mouth on the Guadalupe River, at Comfort in Kendall County (at 29°58' N, 98°54' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, runs through an area characterized by the steep slopes and benches of the Balcones Escarpment, with shallow clay loam soils that support cypress, Ashe juniper, live oak, and mesquite.
