BUCK CREEK (Nolan County). Buck Creek, formerly known as Doyle Creek, rises eleven miles southwest of Maryneal in southwestern Nolan County (at 32°11' N, 100°37' W) and runs southwest for ten miles to its mouth on Big Silver Creek, seventeen miles southeast of Colorado City in southeastern Mitchell County (at 32°11' N, 100°44' W). It crosses flat terrain with locally shallow depressions, surfaced by expansive clay and sandy and clay loam topsoils that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
