FARRER CREEK. Farrer Creek rises in north central King County (at 33°48' N, 100°17' W) and runs east for fifteen miles to its mouth on the Middle Fork of the Wichita River, two miles west of Lowrance Mountain in northeast King County (at 33°48' N, 100°04' W). The stream passes through remote ranch and oil lands with rolling to steep-sloped terrain. Its headwaters are near the Tom B oilfield, and its mouth is within the Juniper gas field. Local soils of shallow clay and sandy loams, occasionally rocky, support juniper, cacti, and sparse grasses. Farrer Spring, slightly active in 1979, is located near the mouth of the creek; Indians once camped beside it.
