INDIAN CREEK (Collin County). Indian Creek rises in the southwestern corner of Collin County (at 30°05' N, 96°50' W) and curves southwesterly for twelve miles before emptying into the Elm Fork of the Trinity River in southeastern Denton County (at 33°00' N, 96°56' W). The creek is in the Blackland Prairie region of north central Texas and runs through flat to gently rolling terrain with deep to shallow calcareous clayey surface soils. Vegetation consists of cover and row crops and tall grasses interspersed with pecan, mesquite, and other hardwood and conifer trees.
