KNOB CREEK. Knob Creek rises in central Bell County (at 31°06' N, 97°21' W) in the middle of Temple. The stream, intermittent in its upper reaches, flows in a southeasterly direction for seventeen miles to its mouth on the Little River, a mile from the Milam county line (at 30°53' N, 97°18' W). The surrounding level to sloping terrain is surfaced by clayey soil used predominantly for agriculture. The area has been heavily utilized as cropland; remaining native vegetation includes post oak woods and grasses.
