MULBERRY CREEK (ARMSTRONG COUNTY)

MULBERRY CREEK (Armstrong County). Mulberry Creek rises seven miles west of Claude and near Fairview in northwestern Armstrong County (at 35°07' N, 101°37' W) and runs southeast for fifty-eight miles through southwestern Donley and northeastern Briscoe counties before reaching its mouth (at 34°37' N, 100°54' W) on the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River in northwestern Hall County. The terrain near the source of the creek is flat to gently sloping with local escarpments. The soil is made up of sandy loams, and the vegetation consists primarily of grasses and scrub brush. Nearer the mouth the terrain is flat with local shallow depressions, and water-tolerant hardwoods grow by the stream banks. Much of the creek remains within the boundaries of the JA Ranch, which once encompassed almost its entire drainage area. The Mulberry Ranch is on the creek eight miles southeast of Claude.
