WILLOW CREEK (Tom Green County). Willow Creek rises a mile east of U.S. Highway 277 and five miles southwest of Tennyson in northeastern Tom Green County (at 31°40' N, 100°19' W) and flows southeast for twenty-one miles before emptying into the Concho River four miles south of Miles in northeastern Tom Green County (at 31°32' N, 100°11' W). Water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and various grasses grow beside the creekbed. The terrain is flat, marked with shallow depressions, and surfaced with expansive clays.
