RED CREEK (Coke County). Red Creek rises just west of Pecan Mott in south central Coke County (at 31°42' N, 100°27' W) and runs southeast for twenty miles to its mouth on the Concho River, three miles southeast of Harriet (at 31°31' N, 100°18' W). It crosses an area of resistant ledges and low cuestas surfaced by shallow, stony soils that support live oak, juniper, and grasses into flat terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
