TAYLOR CREEK (Shackelford County). Taylor Creek rises eight miles northwest of Albany in north central Shackelford County (at 32°50' N, 99°22' W) and flows east for eleven miles to its mouth on Foyle Creek, eight miles south of Fort Griffin State Historic Site in northeast Shackelford County (at 32°50'N, 99°14' W). The stream flows from an area of steep slopes and benches where juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses grow in shallow clay loams onto flat terrain with local shallow depressions and a surface of clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
