LIPAN CREEK (Tom Green County). Lipan Creek rises west of Farm Road 1223 in southeastern Tom Green County (at 31°14' N, 100°14' W) and runs northeast for thirty-three miles to its mouth on the Concho River, west of Vancourt in northwestern Concho County (at 31°31' N, 100°03' W). It is joined southwest of Mereta by Dry Lipan Creek. The creek crosses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
