The creek flows into Elk Creek about eight miles airline northeat of Trail, and Alco Rock 42°45′55″N 122°45′51″W / 42.7654024°N 122.7642117°W / 42.7654024; -122.7642117 (Alco Rock), elevation 4479 feet, is a little to the north of the headwaters of the stream. According to D. W. Pence of Eagle Point, these features were named for an early settler, abut who little seems to be known. He had a place near the mouth of Alco Creek. On May 1, 1896, a post office was established for the locality, with the name Alcoe and with Richard P. Winsly postmaster, but the office was never actually put in operation, and Winsly's appointment was rescinded June 24, 1896.
