BULL CREEK (Mills County). Bull Creek rises just south of Goldthwaite in south central Mills County (at 31°24' N, 98°36' W) and runs south eight miles to its mouth on the Colorado River (at 31°21' N, 98°39' W). It crosses flat terrain upstream and an area of gentle and steep slopes downstream. Juniper, scattered oak, scrub brush, and grasses grow in the local shallow sandy soil.
