The riparian corridor along Honeycut Hollow Creek begins at the south fence line and continues two and one-quarter miles northward until its confluence with the Pedernales River. This corridor is 75% wooded with American sycamore, Eastern cottonwood (Populus deltoids), live oak (Quercus virginiana), cedar elm (Ulmus crassifolia), Ashe juniper (Juniperus ashei), and pecan (Carya illinoensis). Wildlife, both terrestrial and aquatic, thrives in this zone, including the great blue herons.
Due to the consistency of surface water flow in portions of Honeycut Hollow Creek, the riparian corridor hosts the most diverse assortment of plant species found on the ranch.
