BAILEY CREEK. Bailey Creek rises a mile east of Byers in northern Clay County (at 34°03' N, 98°12' W) and flows northeast for slightly more than five miles to its mouth on the Red River (at 34°05' N, 98°07' W). It runs through gently sloping rangeland surfaced with loams. Post oak and pecan trees grow along the first mile of the upper banks; there are few trees along the lower reaches.
