HOLDER CREEK. Holder Creek rises a half mile west of the intersection of State Highway 70 and Farm Road 608, twelve miles southeast of Sweetwater in central Nolan County (at 32°18' N, 100°20' W) and runs northeast for nine miles to its mouth on Bitter Creek, twelve miles southeast of Sweetwater (at 32°23' N, 100°16' W). It traverses an area of steep terrain and benches, surfaced by marl that supports juniper, live oak, mesquite, and various grasses.
