SOUTH FORK OF JIM NED CREEK
SOUTH FORK OF JIM NED CREEK. The South Fork of Jim Ned Creek rises just south of Farm Road 1770 two miles southwest of Novice in northwest Coleman County (at 31°55' N, 99°41' W) and runs fourteen miles northeast to its mouth on Jim Ned Creek, three miles west of Lake Coleman (at 32°03' N, 99°36' W). It crosses flat, flood-prone terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses; in the middle reaches of the creek the terrain is characterized by steep slopes and benches surfaced by shallow clay loams that support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses.
