MUSTANG CREEK (Williamson County). Mustang Creek rises four miles northwest of Hutto in south central Williamson County (at 30°36' N, 97°34' W) and runs southeast for twenty miles to its mouth on Brushy Creek, six miles southeast of Taylor (at 30°32' N, 97°18' W). Its banks are wooded in places with mesquite, oak, and juniper trees, and the creek flows through flat to rolling terrain surfaced by clayey soils used predominantly to grow crops.
