DRY CREEK (McLennan County). Dry Creek rises near the southern city limits of Robinson in southern McLennan County (at 31°25' N, 97°09' W) and runs east for nine miles to its mouth on Bull Hide Creek, three miles northeast of Golinda in Falls County (at 31°23' N, 97°02' W). It traverses flat to rolling prairie with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support mesquite, cacti, and grasses in the upper reaches of the creek, where the creek is intermittent, and water-tolerant hardwoods and conifers in the lower reaches.
