SALT CREEK (King County). Salt Creek is one of the north-south drainages of the South Wichita River in western King County. The intermittent stream rises six miles southwest of Guthrie (at 33°34' N, 100°24' W) in an area of numerous canyons and runs north for four miles before its confluence with the South Wichita River five miles west of Guthrie (at 33°37' N, 100°24' W). Salt Creek flows through moderately steep slopes with locally high relief surfaced by shallow to somewhat deep silt loams covered by mesquite and grasses.
