WALNUT CREEK (Caldwell County). Walnut Creek rises two miles southwest of Lytton Springs in northern Caldwell County (at 29°59' N, 97°37' W) and flows east for twenty-seven miles to its mouth on Cedar Creek, six miles southwest of Bastrop in Bastrop County (at 30°02' N, 97°20' W). The creek is intermittent in its upper reaches. It crosses low rolling hills and prairie surfaced by shallow clay and sandy loams that support mesquite, mixed hardwoods, and grasses.
