BLUFF CREEK (Shackelford County). Bluff Creek rises just north of U.S. Highway 180 in west central Shackelford County (at 32°43' N, 99°26' W) and runs sixteen miles northwest to its mouth on the Clear Fork of the Brazos River (at 32°51' N, 99°34' W). It crosses flat terrain with local shallow depressions and a surface of sandy and clay loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
