PARKER CREEK (DONLEY COUNTY)
PARKER CREEK (Donley County). Parker Creek rises six miles southeast of Hedley in southeastern Donley County (at 34°48' N, 100°35' W) and flows southeast for twenty miles to its mouth on the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River, four miles west of Mauldin in eastern Hall County (at 34°35' N, 100°30' W). It was once on Diamond Tail Ranch property. The surrounding terrain varies from flat to rolling with local escarpments to moderately steeply sloping with locally high relief. Native vegetation consists primarily of mesquite shrub and grasses in soil that varies from deep, fine, sandy loams to shallow to moderately deep silt loams.
