SALTY CREEK (Gonzales County). Salty Creek rises at the confluence of Buckhorn and Sugar creeks, four miles northeast of Pilgrim in southwestern Gonzales County (at 29°20' N, 97°36' W), and runs southeast for fourteen miles to its mouth on Five Mile Creek, in an area of salt flats two miles north of Five Mile Lake (at 29°18' N, 97°29' W). The creek traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, where water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses grow in clay and sandy loam soils.
