WORSER CREEK. Worser Creek rises ten miles east of Gordon in southeast Palo Pinto County (at 32°32' N, 98°12' W) and runs northeast for seven miles to its mouth on Palo Pinto Creek, three miles northwest of New Salem (at 32°38' N, 98°09' W). It crosses steeply to moderately sloping hills, with an elevation of 900 to 1,000 feet above sea level. The area has shallow, stony, clay and sandy loams that support oak, grasses, and mesquite. Among the wildlife in the area are quail, deer, and turkey.
