PECAN CREEK (Hamilton County). Pecan Creek rises (at 31°40' N, 98°08' W) southwest of Hamilton in central Hamilton County and runs southeast for seven miles to its mouth (at 31°43' N, 98°01' W) on the Leon River, a mile south of State Highway 22. The local terrain consists of steep slopes and benches, which range from 900 to 1,200 feet above sea level. The land is surfaced by shallow, stony, clay loams that support juniper, oak, grasses, and scrub brush.
