MIDDLE BEAVER CREEK. Middle Beaver Creek rises three miles northwest of Foard City in south central Foard County (at 33°55' N, 99°49' W) and runs twenty-one miles east to its mouth on Beaver Creek, fifteen miles southeast of Crowell at the Wilbarger county line (at 33°54' N, 99°32' W). The creek is intermittent in its upper reaches. The area has densely dissected gullies and low hills surfaced by shallow soil that supports sparse plants, or no soil or plants. At the creek bed the terrain is flat with local shallow depressions surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
