NOLTON CREEK. Nolton Creek rises (at 29°29' N, 99°32' W) eight miles southwest of Utopia in northeastern Uvalde County and runs southeast for twenty-seven miles to its mouth (at 29°12' N, 99°28' W) on the Sabinal River, a half mile west of Farm Road 187 and eight miles south of Sabinal. The creek rises in terrain of steep slopes and benches, then enters an area of low relief. The local deep loam and clay soils support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and various grasses near the headwaters; in the middle reaches grow scrub brush and grasses, and near the creek's mouth grow pecans, other hardwoods, and various grasses.
