COBB CREEK. Cobb Creek rises 1½ miles from Hillsboro in central Hill County (at 32°01' N, 97°03' W) and runs southwest for twenty-two miles to its mouth on Aquilla Lake near Vaughan (at 31°52' N, 97°12' W). The surrounding terrain varies from flat to rolling prairie and is surfaced by deep to shallow expansive clays, clay loams, and dark, commonly calcareous clays that support oak, juniper, mesquite, cacti, and water-tolerant hardwoods. For most of the county's history, the Cobb Creek area has been used as range and crop land.
