NINE MILE CREEK. Nine Mile Creek rises seven miles northwest of Menard in north central Menard County (at 30°58' N, 99°53' W) and runs southeast for five miles to its mouth on the San Saba River, three miles west of Menard (at 30°56' N, 99°50' W). It traverses flat terrain with local deep dissections; the shallow stony soils support oak, juniper, mesquite, and grasses.
