BLOCKER CREEK. Blocker Creek rises three miles east of the Montague county line in southwestern Cooke County (at 33°35' N, 97°26' W) and runs southeast for 16½ miles to its mouth on Clear Creek, in extreme northwestern Denton County (at 33°25' N, 97°20' W). It crosses flat to rolling terrain with a surface of expansive clays and clay loams and deep, fine sandy loam that supports oak, juniper, brush, and grasses.
