JONES CREEK (Hunt County). Jones Creek rises a mile northwest of Quinlan in south central Hunt County (at 32°56' N, 96°11' W) and runs southeast for six miles to its mouth on the Kitsee inlet of Lake Tawakoni, about a half mile south of Quinlan (at 32°52' N, 96°08' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced with commonly calcareous clays and sandy loams that support mesquite, cacti, grasses, and water-tolerant hardwoods. For most of Hunt County's history the Jones Creek area has been used as crop and range land.
