ELM CREEK (McLennan County). Elm Creek rises a mile southwest of Wiggins in northern McLennan County (at 31°45' N, 97°10' W) and runs south for six miles to its mouth on Aquilla Creek, three miles southeast of Gholson (at 31°42' N, 97°11' W). It traverses low-rolling to flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support juniper, oak, and cacti in the creek's upper and middle reaches and water-tolerant hardwoods and conifers in its lower.
