POST OAK CREEK (Young County). Post Oak Creek, also known as Six Mile Creek, rises six miles southwest of Newcastle in west central Young County (at 33°08' N, 98°51' W) and runs northeast for six miles to its mouth on the Brazos River, two miles west of Newcastle (at 33°11' N, 98°47' W). It traverses an area of steep to moderately sloping hills, surfaced by shallow, stony, clay and sandy loams that support mesquites, oaks, and grasses.
