INDIAN CREEK (Fayette County). Indian Creek rises in north central Fayette County near Farm Road 2145 about 1½ miles north of the Cedar Grove Church (at 30°00' N, 96°51' W) and runs southwest for about five miles, passing through one flood control impoundment before reaching its mouth on Rabbs Creek, near its confluence with the Colorado River (at 29°59' N, 96°55' W). Throughout its course Indian Creek flows primarily through low to moderately rolling terrain with a fine sandy loam surface layer over a firm clay subsoil. Native vegetation consists primarily of a mosaic of post oak woods and grassland.
