SPRING CREEK (Cooke County). Spring Creek rises just north of Hood in southwestern Cooke County (at 33°34' N, 97°20' W). Intermittent in its upper reaches, the stream runs twenty miles southeast to its mouth on the Elm Fork of the Trinity River, five miles southeast of Valley View (at 33°25' N, 97°07' W). It crosses variable terrain surfaced by shallow stony clay loams that support oak, juniper, and grasses. For most of the county's history, the area has been used as range and crop land.
