REYNOLDS CREEK (Brewster County). Reynolds Creek rises at the confluence of Chimney Draw and Dagger Flat Draw one mile west of the Peña Blanca Mountains in central Brewster County (at 30°04' N, 103°12' W) and runs southwest for thirteen miles to its mouth on Maravillas Creek in Maravillas Gap two miles west of U.S. Highway 385 (at 29°56' N, 103°18' W). Steep to gentle slopes are surfaced by variable soils which support scrub brush and sparse grasses. On some maps Reynolds Creek was identified as the lower portion of Wood Hollow Creek, which empties into Reynolds Creek a mile below its source.
