SOUTH PALODURO CREEK. South Paloduro Creek rises in northwestern Moore County 1½ miles from the Hartley county line (at 35°55' N, 102°08' W) and flows east for thirty-five miles through a vast, flat ranching and oil-producing area into northwestern Hutchinson County. At State Highway 136 it turns and flows north through rugged local escarpments to join North Paloduro Creek in southwestern Hansford County (at 36°06' N, 101°28' W) near the area of the old Cator Ranch. The course of the creek is through mostly barren land; only in local draws is the sandy soil deep enough to support brush and grasses.
