COYOTE CREEK (Armstrong County). Coyote Creek rises at the breaks of the Llano Estacado in Palo Duro Canyon in south central Armstrong County (at 34°54' N, 101°19' W) and runs southwest for six miles to its mouth on the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River (at 34°50' N, 101°24' W). It traverses terrain with moderately steep slopes and locally high relief, surfaced by shallow to moderately deep silt loams that support rangeland grasses and mesquite. Coyote Creek is in the western part of the JA Ranch.
