GAP CREEK (Runnels County). Gap Creek rises in far northeastern Runnels County (at 32°00' N, 99°45' W) and runs southwest for thirteen miles to its mouth on Elm Creek, six miles southeast of Winters (at 31°55' N, 99°53' W). The stream supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and various grasses. It runs through flat terrain with local shallow depressions and an expansive clay surface.
