DRY HOLLOW CREEK. Dry Hollow Creek rises a mile west of the Gellermann road in eastern Gillespie County (at 30°19' N, 98°41' W) and runs northeast for 6½ miles to its mouth on North Grape Creek, two miles west of the Blanco county line in eastern Gillespie County (at 30°22' N, 98°37' W). It rises in the hills of the eastern Edwards Plateau and crosses flat terrain broken by an area of steep slopes and limestone benches that give a stairstep appearance to the landscape. Shallow clayey and loamy soils support grasses and open stands of live oak, mesquite, and Ashe juniper.
