MOUNTAIN CREEK (Mills County). Mountain Creek, an intermittent stream also known as Big Mountain Creek, rises twelve miles north of Goldthwaite in northern Mills County (at 31°37' N, 98°34' W) and runs northeast for fourteen miles to its mouth on the South Leon River, seven miles west of Gustine in southern Comanche County (at 31°47' N, 98°29' W). The surrounding terrain ranges from 1,400 to 1,750 feet above sea level and is surfaced by stony, clayey loam that supports grasses, forbs, and brush.
