LITTLE SALT CREEK. Little Salt Creek, also known as Crooked Creek or Pleasant Creek, rises three miles south of the Archer-Young county line and ten miles east of Olney in north central Young County (at 33°22' N, 98°37' W). The wet-weather draw travels south for ten miles before entering Salt Creek six miles northeast of Newcastle (at 33°15' N, 98°40' W). The area surrounding the creek is made up primarily of farm and ranch lands, characterized by flat terrain, loamy soils, and water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
