MCKENZIE CREEK. McKenzie Creek rises sixteen miles north of Snyder in north central Scurry County (at 32°56' N, 100°51' W), at an elevation of about 2,500 feet. The intermittent stream runs northeast through ranchlands for twenty miles to its mouth on the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River, twelve miles southwest of Clairemont (at 33°06' N, 100°54' W). The creekbed falls to an elevation of 2,100 feet during its journey. The dissected gullies and low hills are bare or surfaced by shallow soils and sparse plants.
