CHINA CANYON CREEK. China Canyon Creek rises near Summit two miles south of U.S. Highway 62/70 and six miles west of the Cottle county line in southeast Motley County (at 33°57' N, 100°35' W) and runs east for seven miles to its mouth on Salt Creek, a mile west of the Motley-Cottle boundary (at 33°58' N, 100°31' W). The area is sloping terrain, surfaced by shallow silt loams that support mesquite and grasses. The stream forms the main drainage for China Canyon.
