WALKER CREEK (ELLIS COUNTY)
WALKER CREEK (Ellis County). Walker (Walkers) Creek rises near Interstate Highway 45 a mile east of Ennis in eastern Ellis County (at 32°19' N, 96°36' W) and runs east for ten miles, through generally flat land with occasional shallow depressions surfaced by clay and sandy loams. Water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses grow along the stream's banks. The area has mainly been used as range and crop land. The stream empties into Village Creek in the extreme eastern part of the county eight miles east of Ennis (at 32°20' N, 96°28' W).
