PLUM CREEK (Young County). Plum Creek rises within the Taylor oilfield about two miles northeast of Loving in northeastern Young County (at 33°16' N, 98°30' W) and runs northeast for about ten miles to its mouth (at 33°25' N, 98°23' W) on the West Fork of the Trinity River in northwestern Jack County, two miles southwest of Antelope. The rolling prairies that form the creek's drainage are predominantly ranchland. The soil is made up of clay loams, and the vegetation consists primarily of mesquite and grasses.
