FIVE MILE CREEK (Gonzales County). Five Mile Creek rises slightly south of Cost in central Gonzales County (at 29°23' N, 97°31' W) and runs south for about nineteen miles to its mouth on Sandies Creek, about 1½ miles northeast of Westhoff in DeWitt County (at 29°14' N, 97°26' W). The stream traverses flat terrain with shallow depressions and fine sandy loams that support hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
