SALT CREEK (Stonewall County). Salt Creek rises five miles south of Peacock and four miles north of Double Mountain in west central Stonewall County (at 33°03' N, 100°23' W) and runs southeast for twelve miles to its mouth on the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos River, three miles north of the Stonewall-Fisher county line (at 33°01' N, 100°20' W). Isolated ranchland makes up much of the area, where moderately steep slopes with locally high relief are surfaced by shallow to moderately deep silt loam that supports mesquite and grass.
