HITSON CREEK. Hitson Creek rises in northeastern Fisher County about five miles northwest of Hamlin in Jones County (at 32°56' N, 100°14' W) and runs northeast for six miles to its mouth on the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River, twelve miles south of Aspermont in southeastern Stonewall County (at 33°01' N, 100°11' W). It crosses mostly rolling to steep-sloped terrain with some densely dissected gullies and low hills. The area soils are stony, shallow clay and sandy loams that support sparse vegetation including juniper, cacti, and grasses.
