SALT CREEK (WISE COUNTY)
SALT CREEK (Wise County). Salt Creek, at one time also known as Vale Creek, rises five miles south of Boonsville in southwestern Wise County (at 33°00' N, 97°50' W). It follows a northeasterly course for just under twenty miles to its mouth on the West Fork of the Trinity River, just north of Boyd (at 33°05' N, 97°35' W). The stream crosses the rolling hills of Wise County, where the land surface consists of shallow, sandy soils that support juniper, scattered oak, and a variety of grasses. For most of the county's history the Salt Creek area has been used as rangeland and cropland. In the twentieth century the area has become the site for local mineral production.
