LITTLE CYPRESS CREEK (Blanco County). Little Cypress Creek rises near Shovel Mountain and five miles north of Cypress Mill in northeastern Blanco County (at 30°27' N, 98°14' W) and runs northeast for eight miles to its mouth on Lake Travis, in southern Burnet County eleven miles southeast of Burnet (at 30°29' N, 98°09' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, took its name from the cypress trees along its banks. It traverses generally flat to rolling terrain with some deep dissections and escarpments. The local soils are shallow and stony and support oak, juniper, mesquite, and grasses.
