SQUAW CREEK (Gillespie County). Squaw Creek, also known as Spring Creek, is formed by the confluence of Indian and Flores creeks a mile south of Farm Road 648 in northern Gillespie County (at 30°26' N, 99°02' W). Intermittent in its upper reaches, the stream follows a northwesterly course for twelve miles to its mouth, where it meets Threadgill Creek to form Beaver Creek five miles southwest of Loyal Valley in southeastern Mason County (at 30°32' N, 99°05' W). Squaw Creek runs through an area of the Central Basin characterized by flat to rolling terrain and deep loamy and clayey soils; vegetation consists primarily of grasses and open stands of live oak, mesquite, and Ashe juniper.
