PRINGLE CREEK. Pringle Creek rises two miles west of Park Springs in northwest Wise County (at 33°24' N, 47°52' W) and follows a southeasterly course for 8½ miles. The stream, intermittent in its upper reaches, flows over flat to rolling terrain surfaced mostly with deep, fine, sandy loams. The Pringle Creek area has been primarily used as range and crop land. The stream joins Big Sandy Creek two miles northwest of Alvord (at 33°22' N, 47°44' W).
