FIFTH CREEK (Lipscomb County). Fifth Creek rises eight miles south of Darrouzett in central Lipscomb County (at 36°22' N, 100°20' W) and runs south for seven miles to its mouth on Wolf Creek, three miles west of Lipscomb (at 36°14' N, 100°19' W). It was once within the Seven K Ranch range. The stream traverses flat to rolling terrain with some local escarpments, surfaced by thick, fine sandy loams that support mesquite and grasses.
