POE HOLLOW CREEK. Poe Hollow Creek rises (at 33°32' N, 101°01' W) at an approximate elevation of 2,630 feet above sea level in southwestern Dickens County ten miles northwest of Spur. It runs southwest through remote ranchland for six miles to its mouth (at 33°30' N, 101°04' W) on the White River, in southeastern Crosby County fourteen miles southeast of Crosbyton. The area is flat to rolling with moderately steep slopes and locally high relief; its soils are shallow to moderately deep silt loams and sands that support mesquite and bunch grasses. Poe Hollow Creek is one of the upper drainages for White River Lake.
