LEON CREEK (Pecos County). Leon Creek rises near Lake Leon in central Pecos County (at 30°54' N, 103°00' W). It flows eleven miles north to its mouth on Diamond Y Draw, six miles northwest of Fort Stockton (at 31°01' N, 102°55' W). The creek passes through terrain characterized by steep to gentle slopes and mostly shallow, loamy soils. The vegetation consists mainly of scrub brush and sparse grasses. Interstate Highway 10 and U.S. Highway 285 cross Leon Creek west of Fort Stockton.
