CYPRESS CREEK (Angelina County). Cypress Creek rises about two miles southeast of Zavalla in southeastern Angelina County (at 31°09 N, 94°23' W) and runs south for 9½ miles to its mouth on the Neches River in Jasper County (at 31°03' N, 94°23' W). The surroundings are typical of the East Texas Piney Woods, with low to moderately rolling terrain surfaced by shallow to deep red sandy clay and sandy loam soils that support mixed pine and hardwood forests.
