JENKINS CREEK. Jenkins Creek rises a mile north of Interstate Highway 20 and five miles northwest of Baird in northwestern Callahan County (at 32°27' N, 99°30' W) and runs northeast for eighteen miles to its mouth on Hubbard Creek, two miles east of the intersection of U.S. Highway 283 and Farm Road 576 in south central Shackelford County (at 32°33' N, 99°19' W). It initially traverses terrain that varies from gentle to steep slopes and benches, surfaced by shallow clay loams that support juniper, live oak, mesquite, and grasses. Towards its mouth the creek enters a flat, flood-prone area with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
