COOPER CREEK (Scurry County). Cooper Creek rises in extreme northern Scurry County (at 32°58' N, 100°54' W) and runs northeast for ten miles to its mouth on the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River, eight miles southeast of Clairemont in southeastern Kent County (at 33°06' N, 100°51' W). The surrounding moderately steep slopes, with locally high relief, are surfaced by shallow to moderately deep silt loam that supports mesquite and grasses.
