SHORT CREEK. Short Creek rises near the Wilbarger county line in southwestern Wichita County (at 34°03' N, 98°47' W) and runs east for three miles to its mouth on Beaver Creek, 1½ miles south of the community of Beaver Creek (at 34°00' N, 98°45' W). It is surrounded by steep slopes with locally high relief, surfaced by shallow to moderately deep silt loam that supports mesquite and grasses. For most of the county's history the Short Creek area has been used as rangeland.
