This is one of two creeks named San Lorenzo in California. The other is in Alameda County. There is also a San Lorenzo River in Santa Cruz County.

This San Lorenzo Creek drains Peachtree Valley in the central Coast Ranges. Lewis Creek is a tributary, even though it drains a larger area. For most of its course San Lorenzo Creek flows northwest until it passes Lewis Creek, and then turns southwest, joining the Salinas River just south of King City.
