LITTLE TIMBER CREEK. Little Timber Creek rises six miles southwest of Haskell on Farm Road 1225 in Haskell County (at 33°06' N, 99°48' W) and runs southeast ten miles to its mouth on Paint Creek, five miles northeast of Stamford (at 33°00' N, 99°42' W). It traverses flat terrain with shallow depressions and steep to gentle slopes, surfaced by shallow to moderately deep clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, grasses, and scrub brush.
