MILLS CREEK. Mills Creek rises eight miles northeast of Gustine in southeast Comanche County (at 31°56' N, 98°21' W) and flows south for six miles to its mouth on the Leon River (at 31°52' N, 98°20' W). Steep slopes in the area are surfaced by shallow sandy soils that support juniper, scattered oak, and grasses; in the creek's lower reaches a flat, flood-prone area with local shallow depressions is surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
