SNAKE CREEK (Hill County). Snake Creek rises 5½ miles southeast of Aquilla in southwestern Hill County (at 31°48' N, 97°17' W) and runs west for five miles to its mouth on Aquilla Creek, four miles south of Aquilla (at 31°46' N, 97°18' W). The surrounding area is generally flat to low rolling terrain and is surfaced by shallow, stony clay and sandy loams that support oak and juniper trees, scrub brush, and cacti. It has served as range and cropland.
