SECOND CREEK. Second Creek rises eight miles southwest of Darrouzett in northwestern Lipscomb County (at 36°22' N, 100°26' W) and runs south for seven miles to its mouth on Wolf Creek, fifteen miles west of Lipscomb (at 36°15' N, 100°26' W). Second Creek is on the route of the Jones and Plummer Trail, and much of the creek was included in the old Seven K range. The creek flows through an area where the terrain varies from flat to rolling, with some local escarpments. Native vegetation consists of mesquite, sandsage, and grasses in soil composed of deep, fine sandy loam.
