PILLAR BLUFF CREEK. Pillar Bluff Creek rises in northwestern Burnet County (at 30°58' N, 98°16' W) fifteen miles north of Burnet and runs northeast for six miles to its mouth (at 31°02' N, 98°13' W) on the East Fork of Sulphur Creek, a half-mile south of the Lampasas county line. It traverses generally flat terrain with local deep dissections, surfaced by shallow and stony soil that supports oak, juniper, and mesquite.
