EAST BUFFALO CREEK. East Buffalo Creek rises in southwestern Lipscomb County (at 36°10' N, 100°27' W) and runs north for seven miles to its mouth on Wolf Creek (at 36°14' N, 100°25' W). East Buffalo Creek was near the Jones and Plummer Trail and was part of the Seven K Ranch range. The area is flat with local shallow depressions; water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses grow from clay and sandy loam soils.
