COW CREEK (Coleman County). Cow Creek rises near Robinson Peak eight miles northwest of Coleman in northern Coleman County (at 31°57' N, 99°30' W) and runs east-northeast for eight miles to its mouth on Jim Ned Creek (at 31°58' N, 99°22' W). The stream runs through terrain that is 1,600 to 1,900 feet above sea level. It traverses an area of flat land and rolling hills surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support scrub brush, mesquite, cacti, and grasses.
