HOG CREEK (Erath County). Hog Creek rises four miles south of Alexander in southern Erath County (at 32°00' N, 98°11' W) and runs north for two miles to its mouth on Little Green Creek (at 32°02' N, 98°11' W). It traverses flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments, surfaced by shallow clay loams. Near the stream's mouth the terrain changes to steep slopes and benches, surfaced by mostly deep fine sandy loams that support hardwood forests, brush, and grasses.
