COTTONWOOD CREEK (Hill County). Cottonwood Creek rises four miles northwest of Itasca in north central Hill County (at 32°11' N, 97°14' W) and runs southwest for eleven miles to its mouth on Aquilla Creek, 4½ miles southeast of Blanton (at 32°03' N, 97°16' W). The creek traverses rolling to flat terrain surfaced by shallow stony clay and sandy loams that support juniper, cacti, scrub brush, and grasses. The area has been used as range and crop land.
