EPPS CREEK. Epps Creek rises a mile west of Farm Road 2597 in east central Sutton County (at 30°38' N, 100°14' W) and runs southeast for ten miles to its mouth on West Copperal Creek, in western Kimble County (at 30°34' N, 100°06' W). The stream, located in the gently rolling limestone terrain of the western Edwards Plateau, runs through an area surfaced by shallow to deep loamy soils occasionally broken by rock outcrops. Local vegetation includes range grasses with scattered small stands of oak, juniper, and mesquite.
