LITTLE ELM CREEK (Taylor County). Little Elm Creek rises a quarter mile west of U.S. Highway 277 and 5½ miles northwest of Shep in southwestern Taylor County (at 32°13' N, 100°03' W) and flows northeast intermittently for seven miles before emptying into Elm Creek a quarter mile southeast of the intersection of Farm Road 89 and U.S. 277, nine miles southwest of View (at 32°15' N, 99°59' W). The area terrain is flat and surfaced by clayey soil that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and various grasses.
