KICKAPOO CREEK (Palo Pinto County). Kickapoo Creek, intermittent in its upper reaches, rises west of Lipan in extreme southeast Palo Pinto County (at 32°28' N, 98°08' W) and flows northeast for twenty-three miles, through northwest Hood and southwest Parker counties, to its mouth on the Brazos River, at Horseshoe Bend, eight miles northwest of Albany (at 32°35' N, 97°54' W). Along its course, the stream forms Kickapoo Falls and Bailey's Lake. It flows through flat terrain, with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
