CLICK CREEK. Click Creek rises in Paris just south of Loop 286 and east of Farm Road 1497 in central Lamar County (at 33°38' N, 95°32' W) and runs south for seven miles to its mouth on Hickory Creek, just northeast of Biardstown (at 33°33' N, 95°31' W). The surrounding flat to gently sloping terrain is surfaced by dark clay that supports grasses interspersed with some oak and hickory. The stream is named for Mathias Click, an early owner of the land.
