MILL CREEK (Shackelford County). Mill Creek rises twelve miles northwest of Albany in north central Shackelford County (at 32°54' N, 99°22' W) and runs fifteen miles northeast to its mouth on the Clear Fork of the Brazos River, in Fort Griffin State Park just south of State Highway 283 (at 32°55' N, 99°13' W). Steep slopes and benches of the area are surfaced by shallow clay loam that supports juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses; the terrain changes to rolling hills surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports scrub brush, mesquite, cacti, and grasses.
