MILL CREEK (Taylor County). Mill Creek rises 2½ miles south of Farm Road 89 and nine miles southwest of Tuscola in south central Taylor County (at 32°12' N, 99°55' W) and flows south for seventeen miles before emptying into Bluff Creek a mile east of Interstate Highway 83 and six miles northeast of Winters in north central Runnels County (at 32°02' N, 99°56' W). Mesquite and grasses predominate upstream, and water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses grow downstream. The terrain is flat to gently rolling, and the soils are clayey.
