SQUAW CREEK (Hood County). Squaw Creek rises two miles northwest of Tolar in southern Hood County (at 32°25' N, 97°58' W) and runs southeast twenty-two miles to its mouth on the Brazos River, 2½ miles east of Glen Rose in Somervell County (at 32°15' N, 97°43' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It crosses steep slopes surfaced by shallow clay loams that support juniper, live oak, and mesquite. For most of the county's history the Squaw Creek area has been used as ranchland.
