MAYNARD CREEK. Maynard Creek rises two miles east of Bundy Ranch and three miles north of the Edwards county line in southeast Sutton County (at 30°19' N, 100°09 W) and runs northeast for seventeen miles to its mouth on the North Llano River, one mile east of Roosevelt in Kimble County (at 30°29' N, 100°02 W). Located in the gently rolling limestone terrain of the western Edwards Plateau, the waterway runs through shallow and deep loamy soils, occasionally broken by rock outcrops. Vegetation consists primarily of range grasses with scattered small stands of oak, juniper, and mesquite.
