SALT BRANCH (San Saba County). Salt Branch rises three miles southeast of Cherokee in southern San Saba County (at 30°57' N, 98°41' W) and flows northeast for 6½ miles to its mouth on Cherokee Creek (at 31°01' N, 98°38' W). The stream crosses generally flat terrain with localized dissection. Vegetation consists primarily of Ashe juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses growing in stony and shallow clayey soil.
