MEXICAN CREEK (Briscoe County). Mexican Creek rises near State Highway 256 at the breaks of the Llano Estacado in south central Briscoe County (at 34°29' N, 101°08' W). Entirely within the JA Ranch, it flows northeast twelve miles to it mouth on the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River (at 34°37' N, 101°00' W). A small reservoir and dam are located on its upper waters near the highway. The creek flows through an area of moderately steep slopes with locally high relief, shallow to moderate silt loams, and a cover of mesquite and grasses.
