DARK VALLEY CREEK. Dark Valley Creek rises in northern Palo Pinto County (at 32°59' N, 98°19' W) and runs south for twelve miles to its mouth on the Brazos River, about ten miles east of Possum Kingdom Reservoir (at 32°52' N, 98°18' W). The creek crosses flat to rolling terrain with local deep and dense dissections, with generally shallow and stony soils that support oak, juniper, and some mesquite trees on the land near the stream.
