SUGAR CREEK (Gonzales County). Sugar Creek rises northwest of Bebe in central Gonzales County (at 29°26' N, 97°40' W) and runs ten miles southeast to the point where it joins Buckhorn Creek to form Salty Creek, two miles west of Wrightsboro and just south of Farm Road 108 (at 29°20' N, 97°36' W). The creek begins in flat to rolling prairie, where mesquite, cacti, and grasses grow in dark, commonly calcareous clays. Later in its course the stream passes through low-rolling hills and prairies, where grasses grow in clay and sandy loam soils.
