ROCKY CREEK (Hamilton County). Rocky Creek rises a mile west of Carlton in northern Hamilton County (at 31°55' N, 98°11' W) and runs southwest for ten miles, through the eastern corner of Comanche County, to its mouth on the Leon River, at the Hamilton-Comanche county line (at 31°49' N, 98°12' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It traverses flat, flood-prone terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
