COW CREEK (Brewster County). Cow Creek rises fifteen miles northwest of Bullis Gap (see BULLIS GAP RANGE) and 7½ miles southeast of the Southern Pacific Railroad in eastern Brewster County (at 30°00' N, 102°37' W) and runs southeast for nineteen miles to its mouth on San Francisco Creek, ten miles northeast of Bullis Gap (at 29°54' N, 102°27' W). The creek traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay loams and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
