STRICKLIN CREEK. Stricklin Creek rises in the Anacacho Mountain Range five miles southwest of the intersection of U.S. Interstate Highway 90 West and Farm Road 1572 in southeast Kinney County (at 29°11' N, 100°14' W) and runs southwest for fifteen miles to its mouth on Elm Creek, four miles south of the Maverick county line in far northwestern Maverick County (at 29°02' N, 100°16' W). It crosses an area of low relief surfaced by sand, gravel, and mud that support grass, pecan, and other hardwoods; toward the creek's lower reaches flat terrain with locally shallow depressions is surfaced by clays that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grass.
