WEST PINTO CREEK. West Pinto Creek rises eight miles southeast of the intersection of Farm roads 2523 and 3008 in northwest Kinney County (at 29°30' N, 100°30' W) and runs south for fifteen miles to its mouth on Pinto Creek, several hundred yards northeast of the roadside park at the intersection of Interstate Highway 90 West and Pinto Creek (at 29°20' N, 100°32' W). It crosses steep to gently sloping and flat terrain, surfaced by clay loam that supports scrub brush and grass in the creek's upper and lower reaches and water-tolerant hardwoods and conifers in its middle reaches.
