DARRS CREEK. Darrs Creek rises six miles northwest of Holland in southeastern Bell County (at 30°54' N, 97°30' W) and runs southeast for sixteen miles to its mouth on the Little River, near the Milam county line (at 30°52' N, 97°17' W). The two principal tributaries of the stream are Middle Darrs Creek, which empties into Darrs Creek just west of Holland (at 30°53' N, 97°26' W), and South Darrs Creek, which meets Darrs Creek just south of Holland (at 30°52' N, 97°24' W). Darrs Creek is lined with oak, mesquite, and juniper trees. It traverses gently sloping terrain that is surfaced by loamy and clayey soils and used predominantly for agriculture.
