KING'S BRANCH (McMullen County). King's Branch rises four miles southwest of Tilden in central McMullen County (at 28°24' N, 98°35' W) and runs southeast for seven miles to its mouth on the Nueces River, ten miles southeast of Tilden (at 28°19' N, 98°32' W). It rises in flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments and descends to flat terrain with locally shallow depressions. In the creek's upper reaches, deep, fine sandy loam soils support brush and grasses; toward its mouth, clay and sandy loams support water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses.
