WEDINGTON CREEK. Wedington Creek rises two miles north of Geneview in northern Stonewall County (at 33°19' N, 100°09' W) and runs northeast for ten miles to its mouth on North Croton Creek, one mile south of the Stonewall-King county line and three miles northwest of Kiowa Peak (at 33°23' N, 100°05' W). Pike Springs feeds into Wedington Creek. The springs, still active in 1979, were presumably named for Albert Pike, who camped at the site in 1832. The surrounding steep slopes are surfaced by shallow clay and sandy loam that supports juniper, cacti, and sparse grasses.
