WALNUT CREEK (Blanco County). Walnut Creek rises six miles west of the Round Mountain community in northern Blanco County (at 30°25' N, 98°27' W). The creek follows a northeasterly course through Hill Country terrain for fourteen miles to its mouth on Sandy Creek, 4½ miles below the State Highway 71 bridge over Sandy Creek in southeastern Llano County (at 30°34' N, 98°26' W). Walnut Creek flows through loamy soils and rock outcroppings past grasslands and stands of live oak, mesquite, and Ashe juniper.
