GRAPEVINE CREEK (Tarrant County). Grapevine Creek rises just east of the city limits of Grapevine in northeastern Tarrant County (at 32°55' N, 97°03' W) and runs northeast for eight miles to its mouth on the Elm Fork of the Trinity River, two miles west of Farmers Branch near Carrollton in Dallas County (at 32°56' N, 96°56' W). It traverses low-rolling to flat terrain, surfaced by sandy and clay loams that support scrub brush, cacti, and grasses. The Grapevine Creek area has been used as crop and range land. In 1990 most of the stream was surrounded by the buildings of Grapevine and Farmers Branch.
