ROCKY CREEK (Fayette County). Rocky Creek rises at State Highway 237 in northern Fayette County near the Washington county line (at 30°08' N, 96°39' W) and flows south for 7½ miles to its mouth on Cummins Creek, 1½ miles southeast of Round Top (at 30°03' N, 96°41' W). Throughout its course it flows primarily through soils characterized by a shallow, highly erodible topsoil of sandy loam and firm clay underlayers. The area is considered fair to good for agriculture, and the gently sloping to rolling hillsides are used primarily as improved pasture for cattle and horses.
