ELM CREEK (Red River County). Elm Creek rises about three miles southeast of Boxelder in southeastern Red River County (at 33°28' N, 94°50' W) and runs south for 7½ miles to its mouth on the Sulphur River (at 33°23' N, 94°50' W). The soil in the area is loamy and is used along the creek's upper reaches as pasture or for growing sorghum and small grains. The area near the mouth of the creek is heavily wooded, with pines and various hardwoods predominating.
