DRY PRONG OF DEEP CREEK. The Dry Prong of Deep Creek, sometimes called the West Fork of Deep Creek, rises a mile northeast of Placid in northeastern McCulloch County (at 31°20' N, 99°10' W) and runs north for 7½ miles to its mouth on Deep Creek, a mile southeast of Milburn (at 31°25' N, 99°07' W). It traverses generally flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
