ELM CREEK (Palo Pinto County). Elm Creek rises two miles northwest of Palo Pinto in central Palo Pinto County (at 32°47' N, 98°15' W) and runs northwest for ten miles to its mouth on the Brazos River, a mile east of Farm road 4 (at 32°52' N, 98°17' W). It traverses an area of rolling hills surfaced by clay and sandy loam soils that support mesquite, scrub brush, grasses, and cacti. Two other shorter Elm creeks also rise in Palo Pinto County.
