GRASSHOPPER CREEK. Grasshopper Creek rises 1½ miles southeast of Hood in southwestern Cooke County (at 33°32' N, 97°20' W) and runs south for eleven miles to its mouth on Clear Creek, in north central Denton County (at 33°25' N, 97°19' W). It traverses variable terrain surfaced by shallow, stony clay loams and expansive clays that support oak, juniper, chaparral, cacti, and grasses. Grasshopper Creek is dammed twice in its lower reaches.
