ELM CREEK (Navarro County). Elm Creek rises in Retreat in central Navarro County (at 32°03' N, 96°29' W) and runs northeast for seven miles to its mouth on Post Oak Creek (at 32°05' N, 96°24' W). The stream, which is dammed in its lower reaches to form Lake Halbert, runs through low-rolling hills and prairies, surfaced by dark clays that support grasses and mesquite.
