DELAWARE CREEK

DELAWARE CREEK. Delaware Creek rises two miles west of Burnet in central Burnet County (at 30°46' N, 98°16' W) and runs southeast for five miles to its mouth on Hamilton Creek, four miles south of Burnet (at 30°42' N, 98°14' W). It traverses generally flat terrain with local deep dissections, surfaced by shallow, stony soil that supports oak, juniper, and mesquite.
