ROBERTS CREEK. Roberts Creek begins on the eastern edge of the Caprock Escarpment three miles west of Quitaque Creek in northeastern Floyd County (at 34°11' N, 101°05' W), at an approximate elevation of 3,000 feet, and runs northeast for eight miles to its mouth on Quitaque Creek, four miles north of Flomot in northwest Motley County (at 34°17' N, 100°02' W). The surrounding terrain, flat to gently sloping with moderately steep hills and local high relief, is surfaced by shallow to moderately deep silt loams and sand, that support mesquite, scrub brush, and grasses. Roberts Creek descends about 600 feet through farm and ranch land during its course.
