KLEIN BRANCH. Klein Branch rises just south of Reservation Road three-quarters of a mile east of Farm Road 479 in north central Kerr County (at 30°15' N, 99°18' W) and runs east for fourteen miles to its mouth on the Pedernales River, south of the intersection of Fiedler Road and Tivydale Road (Farm Road 2093) in southwestern Gillespie County (at 30°14' N, 99°09' W). It is intermittent in its upper reaches. The western stretch of the stream was formerly known as Indian Creek and the eastern end as Scott Branch.
