GRAPE CREEK (SCURRY COUNTY)
GRAPE CREEK (Scurry County). Grape Creek rises at the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe tracks thirteen miles northwest of Snyder in northwestern Scurry County (at 32°53' N, 101°04' W) and runs northeast for 18½ miles, crossing into Kent County, then weaving back and forth across the Kent-Garza county line, before reaching its mouth on the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River, twenty-one miles southeast of Post in southeastern Garza County (at 33°04' N, 101°02' W). The area terrain is predominantly moderately steep slopes with some local relief, surfaced by erodible, shallow to moderately deep silt loams that support mesquite and grasses.
