SADDLE CREEK. Saddle Creek rises six miles northeast of Melvin in western McCulloch County (at 31°16' N, 99°30' W) and runs north for twenty-six miles to its mouth on the Colorado River, eight miles north of Pear Valley (at 31°25' N, 99°28' W). The surrounding terrain is flat to rolling with local shallow depressions; clay and sandy loams support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
