SAND RIDGE CREEK. Sand Ridge Creek rises immediately north of the Uvalde-Zavala county line nine miles south of Uvalde in far south central Uvalde County (at 29°06' N, 99°47' W) and runs south for thirteen miles before emptying into the Nueces River a mile northeast of the intersection of Farm Road 57 and the Nueces River in central Zavala County (at 28°57' N, 99°47' W). The vegetation along the creek's course consists of water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and various grasses. The terrain, surfaced with clays, is generally flat.
