SOUTH CANYON CREEK. South Canyon Creek rises just east of Farm Road 94 ten miles northeast of Matador in northeast Motley County (at 34°09' N, 100°42' W) and runs northeast for six miles before joining Turtle Hole Creek eight miles south of Northfield (at 34°11' N, 100°38' W). The intermittent stream provides the main drainage for South Canyon, in what was the northern part of the Matador Ranch in Motley County. The area is average grazing land characterized by locally high relief, shallow silt loam soil, and mesquite and grasses.
