FLINT CREEK (Young County). Flint Creek rises three miles southeast of Loving in eastern Young County (at 33°14' N, 98°30' W) and runs southwest for ten miles to its mouth on Lake Eddleman, northwest of Graham (at 33°10' N, 98°35 ' W). The stream is dammed to form the lake. It traverses steeply to moderately sloping hills and flat terrain with local deep and dense dissection, surfaced by stony clay and sandy loams that support mesquite, oak, juniper, and grasses.
