CYPRESS CREEK (Jasper County). Cypress (Big Cypress) Creek rises just over six miles west of Kirbyville in western Jasper County (at 30°38' N, 94°00' W) and runs southeast for thirty-one miles, crossing into Newton County before reaching its mouth on the Sabine River, 2½ miles north of Deweyville (at 30°20' N, 93°46' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, cuts through the heavily forested areas of southern Jasper and Newton counties. The creek initially traverses an area of gently undulating terrain; closer to its mouth the land is flatter.
