LOST CREEK (Mason County). Lost Creek rises 3½ miles southeast of Fredonia in northeastern Mason County (at 30°54' N, 99°05' W) and runs northwest for twelve miles to its mouth on Tiger Creek, four miles northeast of Voca in McCulloch County (at 31°01' N, 99°08' W). It is intermittent in its upper reaches. The creek rises in the limestone hills on the eastern edge of the Edwards Plateau and crosses flat to rolling to steep terrain of the Llano basin. The soils are deep to shallow sandy and clayey loams, sometimes shallow and stony and sometimes sand. Vegetation consists primarily of scrub brush, grasses, and open stands of live oak, mesquite, and Ashe juniper.
