ROCK CREEK (SOMERVELL COUNTY)

ROCK CREEK (Somervell County). Rock Creek rises one-half mile north of Seven Knobs in southeastern Somervell County (at 32°10' N, 97°45' W) and runs northeast for 7½ miles to its mouth on the Brazos River, two miles southeast of Glen Rose (at 32°13' N, 97°42' W). The creek crosses occasionally steeply sloping terrain surfaced primarily with clay loams that support juniper, live oak, and mesquite trees. Throughout the area's history, the region drained by the stream has been used as rangeland.
