SALINE CREEK (King County). Saline Creek rises six miles northwest of Guthrie in western King County (at 33°39' N, 100°25' W) and travels south for three miles to its mouth on the South Wichita River, five miles west of Guthrie and one mile south of U.S. Highway 82 (at 33°37' N, 100°24' W). The mouth of Saline Creek is just west of the confluence of Salt Creek and the South Wichita River. Saline Creek flows through moderately steep slopes with locally high relief surfaced with shallow to moderately deep silt loams covered by mesquite and grasses.
