CROOKED CREEK (JACK COUNTY)
CROOKED CREEK (Jack County). Crooked Creek rises four miles southwest of Newport in northeastern Jack County (at 33°24' N, 98°06' W) and runs south for just under eight miles to its mouth on the West Fork of the Trinity River, ten miles north of Jacksboro (at 33°20' N, 98°08' W). It traverses gently to steeply sloping terrain surfaced with clay and sandy loam soils that support scrub brush, cacti, mesquite, and live oak trees. The area has generally been used as range and crop land and for mineral production.
