CHIMNEY CREEK (HOWARD COUNTY)
CHIMNEY CREEK (Howard County). Chimney Creek rises five miles north of Forsan in southeast Howard County (at 32°11' N, 101°21' W) and runs northeast for seven miles, traversing the Signal Mountains, to its mouth on Beals Creek, six miles southeast of Coahoma (at 32°14' N, 101°16' W). Chimney Creek runs through flat to rolling terrain surfaced by shallow, stony sand that supports oak, juniper, grasses, and mesquite. Several ridges over 2,700 feet in elevation lie just east of the creek. The surrounding area is sparsely settled ranchland. The main source of the stream is Barnett Springs.
