FOURMILE CREEK (Kent County). Fourmile Creek rises at an elevation of 2,200 feet above sea level, seven miles southwest of Clairemont in central Kent County (at 33°09' N, 100°52' W), and travels northeast for eight miles, dropping 300 feet before reaching its mouth on the Salt Fork of the Brazos River, four miles northwest of Clairemont (at 33°12' N, 100°47' W). The stream traverses isolated ranchland with moderately steep slopes and locally high relief, surfaced by shallow to moderately deep silt loams that support mesquite and grasses.
