FLAT ROCK CREEK (Edwards County). Flat Rock Creek rises two miles northwest of the Dobbs triangulation station in southwestern Edwards County in the Edwards Plateau (at 29°42' N, 100°31' W) and runs south for seventeen miles to its mouth on the East Fork of Sycamore Creek, three miles southeast of Horn Ranch in northwestern Kinney County (at 29°31' N, 100°34' W). It traverses flat terrain with local deep and dense dissection, surfaced by shallow, stony soils that support oak, juniper, and mesquite.
