ASH CREEK (Hill County). Ash Creek rises 2½ miles northwest of Bynum in central Hill County (at 32°00' N, 97°03' W) and runs southeast for twenty miles to its mouth on Navarro Mills Reservoir, five miles south of Irene (at 31°57' N, 96°46' W). It traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loams. For most of the county's history, the Ash Creek area has been used as range and crop land.
