COTTONWOOD CREEK (Hood County). Cottonwood Creek rises 15½ miles northwest of Granbury and one mile south of the Parker county line in northwest Hood County (at 32°32' N, 97°56' W) and runs north for five miles to its mouth on Kickapoo Creek, just southwest of Buckner in southwestern Parker County (at 32°35' N, 97°54' W). The creek traverses steeply sloping terrain surfaced by shallow sandy soils and clay loams that support junipers, live oaks, mesquites, and various grasses. The area drained by the creek historically has served as rangeland.
