SYCAMORE CREEK (Burnet County). Sycamore Creek rises eight miles southeast of Burnet in south central Burnet County (at 30°39' N, 98°10' W) and runs southwest for nine miles to its mouth on the Colorado River, four miles below the Max Starke Dam (at 30°34' N, 98°12' W). It crosses steep slopes and benches into generally flat terrain with local shallow depression. Shallow clay and sandy loams support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses in the upper reaches and water-tolerant hardwoods and conifers in the lower.
