KINCAID CREEK

KINCAID CREEK. Kincaid Creek rises ten miles northwest of Pine Mountain in southeastern Brewster County (at 29°57' N, 103°04' W) and runs southeast for nine miles to its mouth on Bear Creek, six miles west of Pine Mountain (at 29°55' N, 102°59' W). It traverses flat terrain with local deep and dense dissection, surfaced by shallow, stony soils that support oak, juniper, and some mesquite. The creek was reportedly named for John Kincaid, who settled on its banks in 1894.
