SNAILUM CREEK. Snailum Creek rises one mile north of Albany in north central Shackelford County (at 32°46' N, 99°16' W) and runs southeast for eight miles to its mouth on the Salt Prong of Hubbard Creek, five miles east of Albany (at 32°43' N, 99°11' W). It crosses rolling hills surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports scrub brush, mesquite, cacti, and grasses.
