SPRING CREEK (Bosque County). Spring Creek, also known as Grass Creek, rises six miles northeast of Walnut Springs in northern Bosque County (at 32°06' N, 97°40' W) and runs northeast for ten miles to its mouth on the Brazos River (at 32°09' N, 97°34' W). Spring Creek flows through an area of the Grand Prairie region characterized by flat to rolling terrain with locally steep slopes. Soils are shallow to deep, cracking, clayey, and loamy; and vegetation consists mainly of Texas winter grass with stands of live oak, post oak, mesquite, and juniper. The area is used primarily for cropland and rangeland.
