MUD CREEK (Young County). Mud Creek rises north of State Highway 114 a mile south of the Archer-Young county line in northwestern Young County (at 33°22' N, 98°50' W) and flows six miles east, through the town of Olney, to merge with Salt Creek near Spring Creek Road just east of Olney (at 33°22' N, 98°45' W). The surrounding terrain is generally flat with local shallow depressions, and clay and sandy loams support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
