FLAKEMOORE CANYON CREEK. Flakemoore (Flakemore) Canyon Creek rises eleven miles northeast of Gilpin in southeastern Dickens County (at 33°31' N, 100°34' W) and runs east through isolated ranchland for three miles before reaching its mouth on North Croton Creek, less than a mile west of the Dickens-King county line (at 33°31' N, 100°32' W). The creek and canyon are within the Croton Breaks, an area of moderately steep slopes and locally high relief, with an elevation of 2,140 feet above sea level, surfaced by shallow to moderately deep silt loams that support mesquite and grasses.
