GUADALUPE CREEK. Guadalupe Creek rises just east of the La Salle county line in southwestern McMullen County (at 28°21' N, 98°47' W) and runs southeast for twelve miles to its mouth on the Nueces River, sixteen miles southwest of Tilden (at 28°14' N, 98°40' W). It rises in flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments and descends to flat terrain with locally shallow depressions. Soils along the creek are initially deep, fine, sandy loams that support brush and grasses, changing in its lower reaches to clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses.
