HOME CREEK (Coleman County). Home Creek rises four miles south of Glen Cove in western Coleman County (at 31°48' N, 99°38' W) and runs southeast for thirty miles to its mouth on the Colorado River, nine miles south of Trickham (at 31°29' N, 99°14' W). Fishermen use the creek, which flows through locally flat terrain surrounded by rolling hills and steep slopes. Local soils are clayey and sandy loams and support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses. In 1949 the stream was dammed by the Central Colorado River Authority.
