PENNINGTON CREEK. Pennington Creek rises three miles south of Bluffton in eastern Llano County (at 30°47' N, 98°30' W) and runs south for 6½ miles to its mouth on the Llano River, two miles southwest of the intersection of State Highway 29 and Ranch Road 1431 (at 30°42' N, 98°29' W). The creek traverses an area of the Llano Basin characterized by flat to rolling terrain, locally dissected and covered with soils ranging from sandy to clay loams. Vegetation consists primarily of open stands of live oak and mesquite.
