BURR OAK CREEK. Burr Oak Creek, also known as Burnt Oak Creek, rises fifteen miles southwest of Eden in southwestern Concho County (at 31°07' N, 100°04' W) and runs 7½ miles northwest to its mouth on Kickapoo Creek, fifteen miles west of Eden (at 31°12' N, 100°05' W). It crosses an area of rolling terrain surfaced by clays and loams that support oak, juniper, and mesquite.
