ALLEN CREEK (Cherokee County). Allen Creek rises two miles northeast of Alto in southern Cherokee County (at 31°41' N, 95°02' W) and runs southeast for six miles to its mouth on the Angelina River, three miles east of Linwood (at 31°40' N, 94°57' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It traverses flat to gently rolling terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports mixed hardwoods and pines.
