RED BANK CREEK (Hood County). Red Bank Creek rises in northwestern Hood County two miles southeast of Buckner, Parker County (at 32°32' N, 97°54' W). It flows north for 2½ miles, passing through gently undulating to steep land made up of sandy to clayey soils that support grasses and timber. For most of its history the Red Bank Creek area has been used for rangeland and mineral production. The intermittent stream empties into the Brazos River in northern Hood County (at 32°33' N, 97°52' W).
