WHITE BLUFF CREEK. White Bluff Creek rises in western Somervell County, five miles northeast of Chalk Mountain, Erath County (at 32°13' N, 97°54' W) and runs northeast for five miles through an area of steep slopes with mostly shallow clay loam soil. The stream's banks are shaded by juniper, live oak, and mesquite trees. Throughout the county's history, the White Bluff Creek area has been used as rangeland. The stream empties into the Paluxy River just west of Dinosaur Valley State Park (at 32°14' N, 97°50' W).
