TROUBLESOME CREEK. Troublesome Creek rises in northern Briscoe County (at 34°42' N, 101°13' W) and flows southwest for two miles to its mouth on the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River (at 34°41' N, 101°14' W). The terrain ranges from flat to gently sloping and is surfaced by shallow to moderately deep loams that support mesquite and grasses. Some local shallow depressions occur just before the creek's mouth. The soil composition changes to clay and sandy loams, and water-tolerant hardwoods and conifers appear. The creek is part of the JA Ranch properties.
