SOUTH BEAVER CREEK. South Beaver Creek rises one mile northeast of Halsell Ranch in south central Foard County (at 33°51' N, 99°39' W) and runs east twenty-four miles to its mouth on Beaver Creek, six miles southwest of Santa Rosa Lake in the southwest corner of Wilbarger County (at 33°52' N, 99°19' W). The creek rises in an area of densely dissected gullies and low hills surfaced by shallow or absent soils that support sparse or no plants. In the creek's lower reaches moderately steep slopes with locally high relief are surfaced by shallow to moderately deep silt loams that support mesquite and grasses.
