ELM CREEK (Hunt County). Elm Creek rises a mile northeast of Floyd in west central Hunt County (at 33°10' N, 96°14' W) and runs southeast thirteen miles to its mouth on West Caddo Creek, five miles northwest of Quinlan (at 33°00' N, 96°10' W). It traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by dark, commonly calcareous clays and clay and sandy loams that support mesquite, cacti, grasses, water-tolerant hardwoods, and conifers.
