ROCKY CREEK (Scurry County). Rocky Creek rises sixteen miles northwest of Snyder in northwest Scurry County (at 32°54' N, 101°06' W) and flows north for thirteen miles, crossing the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway and passing through the Lozone and Dorward oilfields, to its mouth on the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River, nineteen miles southeast of Post in the southeastern corner of Garza County (at 33°02' N, 101°07' W). The area terrain is moderately steep slopes with local relief, surfaced by erodible, shallow to moderately deep silt loams that support mesquite and grasses.
