LITTLE HACKBERRY CREEK. Little Hackberry Creek, also known as Hackberry Creek, rises east of State Highway 55 and eight miles southeast of Rock Springs in east central Edwards County (at 29°57' N, 100°09' W) and runs south fifteen miles to its mouth on Pulliam Creek (at 29°50' N, 100°06' W). It traverses variable terrain that is surfaced by shallow stony soils and clay and sandy loams that support oak, juniper, and mesquite, and water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
