FOURTH CREEK. Fourth Creek rises sixteen miles southwest of Darrouzett in north central Lipscomb County (at 36°21' N, 100°22' W) and runs south for seven miles to its mouth on Wolf Creek, seven miles west of Lipscomb (at 36°14' N, 100°21' W). It traverses flat to rolling terrain with some local escarpments, surfaced by deep, fine sandy loams that support mesquite, brush, and grasses. The creek's lower portion was within the Seven K Ranch range.
