MULBERRY CREEK (TAYLOR COUNTY)
MULBERRY CREEK (Taylor County). Mulberry Creek rises in western Taylor County (at 32°19' N, 100°07' W) and flows for thirty-six miles northeast to join the Clear Fork of the Brazos River in southeastern Jones County (at 32°35' N, 99°44' W). The stream flows through flat to gently sloping and moderately steep terrain surfaced with loose sand, stony soils, and silt loams that support scrub brush, grasses, cacti, juniper, live oak, and mesquite. In Jones County the stream is dammed to form a lake with a capacity of 850 acre-feet. The reservoir, owned by Henry Sayles, is used for irrigation and recreation.
