CEDAR CREEK (Fayette County). Cedar Creek rises in western Fayette County (at 29°55' N, 97°08' W) and runs northeast for nine miles to its mouth on the Colorado River, just below Bartons Creek (at 29°58' N, 97°04' W). It traverses an area of rolling terrain surfaced by fine sandy loams and clays that support mixed oak and cedar with a yaupon understory that provides good wildlife habitat.
