COW CREEK (Erath County). Cow Creek rises just north of Bunyan in western Erath County (at 32°10' N, 98°22' W) and runs eight miles southwest to its mouth on Armstrong Creek in northeastern Comanche County (at 32°06' N, 98°29' W). The creek, which is dammed in its middle reaches, traverses flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments, surfaced by shallow gravels and loams that support buffalo grass and a few short grasses.
