DOUBLE HORN CREEK. Double Horn Creek rises about 2½ miles east of the Round Mountain community in northeastern Blanco County (at 30°26' N, 98°18' W) and runs northeast for 12½ miles to its mouth on the Colorado River in what is now the upper end of Lake Travis, about eight miles from Marble Falls in southern Burnet County (at 30°32' N, 98°11' W). The stream traverses flat to rolling Hill Country terrain with clayey and loamy soils that support mixed vegetation, including Ashe juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses.
