Description:
Hackers Creek is a tributary of the West Fork River, approximately long, in north-central West Virginia in the United States. Via the West Fork, Monongahela and Ohio Rivers, it is part of the watershed of the Mississippi River, draining an area of 58 square miles (150 kmĀ²) on the unglaciated portion of the Allegheny Plateau. The stream is believed to have been named for a settler named John Hacker, who lived near the creek for over twenty years beginning around 1770, and was said to have been able to "read but not write; and yet he was a magistrate and a patriarch in the settlement."

Hackers Creek rises approximately five miles (8 km) north of Buckhannon in northern Upshur County and flows westwardly into northeastern Lewis County, where it turns northwestwardly and flows through the town of Jane Lew into southern Harrison County, where it joins the West Fork River from the southeast, approximately three miles (5 km) northwest of Jane Lew.DeLorme (1997). West Virginia Atlas & Gazetteer. Yarmouth, Maine: DeLorme. p.36. ISBN 0-89933-246-3.

According to the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection, approximately 69% of the Hackers Creek watershed is forested, mostly deciduous. Approximately 28% is used for pasture and agriculture, and less than 1% is urban.
