MULBERRY CREEK (Mason County). Mulberry Creek, also known as Stone Creek, rises in eastern Mason County two miles northeast of Art (at 30°46' N, 99°05' W). It was named for the mulberry trees that grow in the area around Mulberry Spring. Intermittent in its upper reaches, the spring-fed stream follows a southeasterly course for 7½ miles, flowing through dry, sandy beds as it nears its mouth on the Llano River, 2½ miles south of State Highway 29 (at 30°42' N, 99°02' W). Rising in the limestone hills on the eastern edge of the Edwards Plateau, the creek crosses an area of the Llano Basin characterized by flat to rolling terrain and deep to shallow sandy and clayey loams. Vegetation consists primarily of scrub brush, grasses, and open stands of live oak and mesquite.
