EAST BRANCH OF CEDAR CREEK. The East Branch of Cedar Creek rises about two miles west-northwest of the Byler Point Church in western Fayette County (at 29°54' N, 97°07' W) and runs northeast for about 3½ miles to its mouth on Cedar Creek (at 29°56' N, 97°06' W). It traverses an area of rolling terrain with a fine sandy loam surface layer and a very firm clay subsoil. The area is used mainly as unimproved pasture. Local vegetation varies from scattered to dense clumps of mixed oak and cedar with an understory of yaupon that provides good wildlife habitat.
