ASH CREEK (Parker County). Ash Creek rises four miles southwest of Sanctuary in northeast Parker County (at 32°52' N, 97°42' W) and flows southeast for fourteen miles to its mouth on the West Fork of the Trinity River, three miles southeast of Azle in northwestern Tarrant County (at 32°52' N, 97°31' W). It runs across undulating to gently rolling land surfaced by sandy and loamy soils that support grass and hardwoods. For most of the county's history the Ash Creek area has been used as range and crop land.
