TURTLE HOLE CREEK (Young County). Turtle Hole Creek rises three miles south of Loving and five miles west of the Jack county line in east central Young County (at 33°14' N, 98°31' W) and runs southwest for eight miles before joining Flint Creek four miles north of Graham (at 33°10' N, 98°35' W). The surrounding area is primarily ranchland. The creek flows from rolling prairie into an area of resistant ledges and low cuestas. Live oak, juniper, mesquite, and grasses grow in shallow, stony soils or clay loams along the creek.
