LEON CREEK (Bexar County). Leon Creek rises seven miles northeast of Leon Springs in northwestern Bexar County (at 29°41' N, 98°44' W) and runs southeast for thirty-six miles through Leon Valley and the western portion of San Antonio to its mouth on the Medina River, just west of Cassin (at 29°16' N, 98°30' W). The stream traverses flat to gently rolling terrain surfaced by clay loam that supports mesquite, liveoak, cacti, and grasses.
