ELM CREEK (Bastrop County). Elm Creek rises three miles north of Elgin in northern Bastrop County (at 30°23' N, 97°22' W) and runs southwest for seven miles to its mouth on Dry Creek, seven miles east of Manor in Travis County (at 30°20' N, 97°26' W). The stream traverses flat to rolling prairie surfaced by dark, calcareous clays that support mesquite, cacti, and grasses.
