JTH CANYON CREEK. JTH Canyon Creek rises in southeast Dickens County two miles northeast of the intersection of State Highway 70 and the Dickens-Kent county line (at 33°24' N, 100°39' W). The small intermittent stream runs northeast for five miles through JTH Canyon to enter Croton Creek six miles northeast of Gilpin (at 33°26' N, 100°36' W). From its origin in an area of moderately steep slopes with shallow to moderately deep silt loams and vegetation consisting of mesquite and grasses, the stream flows into densely dissected gullies and low hills, where the soil is shallow and vegetation is sparse or nonexistent. The canyon is located within the region of the Croton Breaks.
