HICKORY CREEK (Cooke County). Hickory Creek rises a mile northwest of Callisburg in northeastern Cooke County (at 33°42' N, 97°02' W) and runs northwest for eleven miles to its mouth on the Addington Bend of the Red River, just west of Coesfield (at 33°49' N, 97°03' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its lower reaches, traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by dark, commonly calcareous clays, sandy loams, and clay loams that support mesquite, scrub brush, cacti, and grasses.
