SPRING CREEK (King County). Spring Creek rises on the Rosa Ranch oilfield in east central King County (at 33°35' N, 100°04' W). The stream runs north for eight miles, through rolling to steep slopes in remote range and oil lands, to its mouth on the South Wichita River, four miles west of the King-Knox county line (at 33°38' N, 100°03' W). Although the creek is fed by several small seeps, it contains little water. Shallow clayey and sandy loams with some local stoniness support juniper, cacti, and sparse grasses in the area.
