MIDDLE FORK OF THE WICHITA RIVER
MIDDLE FORK OF THE WICHITA RIVER. The Middle Fork of the Wichita River rises near U.S. Highway 83 north of Fourmile Hill in north central King County (at 33°46' N, 100°19' W) and flows northeast thirty-five miles to join the North Wichita River six miles southwest of Foard City in southwestern Foard County (at 33°52' N, 99°55' W). Farrer Creek is a principal tributary. The river flows from rolling hills and steep slopes surfaced by shallow clay and sandy loam that supports juniper, cacti, and sparse grasses into flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers and grasses.
