HAMILTON CREEK (Travis County). Hamilton Creek rises 5½ miles southwest of the intersection of Bee Creek Road and State Highway 71, in the western corner of Travis County (at 30°18' N, 98°05' W), and runs northwest for six miles to its mouth on the Pedernales River, a half mile north of Hammetts Crossing (at 30°21' N, 98°08' W). It is intermittent in its upper reaches. Live oak and Ashe juniper trees grow in the loamy soils found along Hamilton Creek.
