PRAIRIE CREEK (Hood County). Prairie Creek rises 5½ miles south of Tolar in southern Hood County (at 32°19' N, 97°52' W) and runs south for five miles to its mouth on Paluxy Creek, two miles southwest of Cedar Brake Girl Scout Camp in northwestern Somervell County (at 32°15' N, 97°51' W). The area terrain is generally steeply sloping and is surfaced with shallow clay loams that support juniper, live oak, and mesquite. Historically the Prairie Creek vicinity has been used as ranchland.
