LITTLE CROTON CREEK. Little Croton Creek, once known as Mustang Creek, rises two miles south of State Highway 114 in southeastern King County (at 33°32' N, 100°09' W) and runs southeast for sixteen miles to its mouth on the Brazos River (at 33°29' N, 99°52' W), in southwestern Knox County five miles northwest of Knox City. The local terrain of low-rolling to steep slopes is surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support juniper, cacti, and sparse grasses.
