SPRING CREEK (Crosby County). Spring Creek rises on the eastern edge of the Caprock near the eastern terminus of Farm Road 2150 in extreme southwestern Crosby County (at 33°25' N, 101°31' W), at an approximate elevation of 3,000 feet. The stream travels southeast for six miles to its mouth on the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River, just south of the Crosby-Garza county line (at 33°24' N, 101°27' W), eight miles northeast of Southland. The stream flows through flat to moderately steep terrain, with clay, silt, and sandy loams supporting mesquite, grasses, and conifers.
