COW CREEK (Coke County). Cow Creek rises a mile northeast of Hayrick Mountain and eight miles northeast of Robert Lee in northeastern Coke County (at 31°59' N, 100°24' W) and runs south for seven miles to its mouth on the Colorado River, six miles southwest of Bronte (at 31°51' N, 100°23' W). The creek crosses the McCutchen oilfield near State Highway 158. The local terrain is flat to rolling with steep margins and is surfaced by shallow to deep sandy clay loam soils that support oak, juniper, elm, and grasses.
