LIVEOAK CREEK (Kinney County). Liveoak Creek rises (at 29°35' N, 100°11' W) five miles northwest of Boiling Mountain in far northwestern Kinney County and runs southeast for sixteen miles to its mouth (at 29°26' N, 100°07' W) on Sycamore Creek, at the West Nueces River a half mile west of the intersection of Farm Road 334 and the Uvalde county line. The variable terrain is surfaced by sand and gravel that supports oak, juniper, mesquite, and various grasses in the creek's upper reaches and water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses in its lower.
