CORN CREEK. Corn Creek rises four miles southwest of Placid in northeastern McCulloch County (at 31°16' N, 99°14' W) and runs north for eighteen miles to its mouth on the Colorado River, three miles northwest of Mercury (at 31°27' N, 99°11' W). The surrounding flat to rolling prairie is surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support vegetation ranging from water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses to scrub brush and mesquite.
