STROUDS CREEK. Strouds Creek rises two miles north of Tolar in west central Hood County (at 32°26' N, 97°58' W) and runs northeast for eleven miles to its mouth on Lake Grandbury, 1½ miles northeast of Thorpe Springs (at 32°29' N, 97°48' W). It crosses steep slopes surfaced by clay loam that supports juniper, live oak, and mesquite. For most of the county's history, the Strouds Creek area has been used as ranchland.
