Canyon Creek rises ten miles northeast of Higgins in southeastern Lipscomb County (at 36°05' N, 100°09' W) and runs north for nine miles to its mouth on Wolf Creek, seven miles east of Lipscomb (at 35°15' N, 100°07' W). The stream traverses terrain that varies from flat to rolling, with some local escarpments. Native vegetation consists primarily of mesquite and grasses growing in deep, fine sandy loams.
