MIDDLE SULPHUR RIVER. The Middle Sulphur River rises four miles northeast of Wolfe City in northeastern Hunt County near the county line (at 33°23' N, 96°03' W) and runs southeast in its upper reaches and east in its middle and lower reaches, for a distance of twenty-six miles. It traverses a generally flat region surfaced mainly with clay and sandy loams. Historically the area has served as crop and range land. Water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and various grasses are found along the river. The Middle Sulphur River empties into the South Sulphur River one mile south of Klondike in extreme southeastern Delta County (at 33°18' N, 95°45' W).
