ELM CREEK (Menard County). Elm Creek rises twelve miles south of Menard in southern Menard County (at 30°44' N, 99°47' W) and runs northeast for sixteen miles to its mouth on the San Saba River, eight miles east of Menard (at 30°53' N, 99°39' W). The surrounding flat to rolling prairie is surfaced by shallow, stony clay loams that support oak, juniper, mesquite, and grasses.
