LITTLE BLANCO RIVER. The Little Blanco River rises twenty miles northeast of Boerne in eastern Kendall County (at 30°01' N, 98°32' W) and flows east for twenty-two miles, across Blanco, Comal, and Hays counties, to its mouth on the Blanco River, 13½ miles south of Dripping Springs (at 30°03' N, 98°15' W). Several lakes, one of which is dammed, lie along the course of the river, which crosses an area of the Balcones Escarpment characterized by flat to rolling terrain with shallow depressions and generally shallow to deep loamy soil with rock outcrops; vegetation consists primarily of live oak and Ashe juniper woods, as well as mesquite and grasses.
