TURTLE BAYOU (Coleman County). Turtle Bayou rises just east of U.S. Highway 84 eight miles northwest of Coleman in northwest Coleman County (at 31°56' N, 99°32' W) and runs eight miles northeast to its mouth on Jim Ned Creek, twelve miles north of Coleman (at 32°00' N, 99°26' W). It crosses steep to gentle slopes and benches surfaced by shallow clay loams that support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses.
