MIDDLE BERNARD CREEK. Middle Bernard Creek rises near the intersection of Farm roads 2761 and 949, six miles southeast of Alleyton in eastern Colorado County (at 29°41' N, 96°23' W) and runs southeast, into Wharton County, for twenty-seven miles to its mouth on the San Bernard River (at 29°33' N, 96°03' W). Throughout its course the stream flows over broad, flat, coastal prairie with poorly drained, deep, sandy loam topsoils. The land is used primarily as improved pasture for cattle and horses and for the production of hay and rice. Vegetation consists primarily of water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses.
