GRAPE CREEK (Coleman County). Grape Creek rises 1½ miles east of Talpa in far western Coleman County (at 31°47' N, 99°41' W) and runs southwest, then southeast, for twenty-one miles to its mouth on the Colorado River, at the Coleman-Concho county line a mile southwest of Leaday in far southwestern Coleman County (at 31°33' N, 99°41' W). Juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses grow beside the upper streambed, and water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses grow downstream. The creek rises in terrain with steep slopes and benches and ends in flat land with shallow depressions and a clay surface.
