FLAT CREEK (Blanco County). Flat Creek rises 2½ miles west-southwest of Henly in far eastern Blanco County (at 30°11' N, 98°15' W) and runs north-northeast for 13½ miles to its mouth on the Pedernales River, 6½ miles below the lower end of Pedernales Falls (at 30°19' N, 98°13' W). It runs through an area of the Edwards Plateau characterized by loamy, clayey soils with rock outcroppings that support grasslands and stands of live oak, mesquite, and juniper. Flat Creek is intermittent in its upper reaches but mostly free-flowing for its lower nine miles.
