THREADGILL CREEK. Threadgill Creek rises a mile west of Farm Road 783 in western Gillespie County (at 30°20' N, 99°14' W). Intermittent in its upper reaches, the stream runs northeast for twenty-four miles to its mouth, where it meets Squaw Creek to form Beaver Creek five miles southwest of Loyal Valley in southeastern Mason County (at 30°32' N, 99°05' W). Rising in the hills of the eastern Edwards Plateau, Threadgill Creek crosses an area characterized by flat to rolling terrain and deep to shallow loamy and clayey soils; vegetation consists primarily of open stands of live oak and Ashe juniper and grasses.
