ROUGH CREEK (Mills County). Rough Creek rises twelve miles west of Goldthwaite in southwestern Mills County (at 31°31' N, 98°51' W) and runs southwest for five miles to its mouth on the Colorado River, nineteen miles west of Goldthwaite (at 31°27' N, 98°53' W). The surrounding steeply to moderately sloping hills, with an elevation of 1,200 to 1,400 feet above sea level, are surfaced by shallow, stony clay and sandy loams that support oak, grasses, and mesquite.
