MEXIA CREEK. Mexia Creek rises eight miles south of Baird just west of U.S. Highway 283 in central Callahan County (at 32°19' N, 99°24' W) and runs sixteen miles, north through Baird Lake then east, to its mouth on Deep Creek, one mile north of Interstate Highway 20 and ten miles east of Baird (at 32°24' N, 99°16' W). Flat, flood-prone terrain of the area has local shallow depressions and is surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
