PIN OAK CREEK (Fayette County). Pin Oak Creek rises two miles south of Cistern in southwestern Fayette County (at 29°47' N, 97°13' W) and runs south for 6½ miles, past Elm Grove on Farm Road 2762, to its mouth on Peach Creek, one mile inside Gonzales County (at 29°42' N, 97°14' W). Its course crosses sloping terrain surfaced by erodible sandy loam over clay subsoil. These soils are fair for agriculture and are used primarily as improved pastures. Wooded areas are often dense mixtures of oak, cedar, and hackberry with a yaupon understory. Abandoned fields show cedar and mesquite.
