GROESBECK CREEK. Groesbeck Creek rises in north and south branches in eastern Childress County and from the branches' convergence in central Hardeman County (at 34°22' N, 99°46' W) runs east for about forty miles across northern Hardeman County to join the Red River (at 34°22' N, 99°36' W). The stream traverses land that was once part of the Shoe Nail and OX ranch ranges. Groesbeck Creek runs through flat to rolling terrain with shallow clay loams that support grasses and cacti.
