SNAKE CREEK (Jack County). Snake Creek rises two miles north of Perrin in eastern Jack County (at 33°07' N, 98°05' W). It flows northeast for eight miles to its mouth on Carroll Creek, four miles east of Jacksboro (at 33°13' N, 98°03' W). The land is gently sloping to steep and surfaced with well drained stony and clayey soils. The banks of the stream are bordered by prairie grasses free of timber. The Snake Creek area has been generally used as rangeland and for local mineral production.
