EAST MILL CREEK
EAST MILL CREEK. East Mill Creek rises near the Antioch Church in the Sand Flat community in north central Smith County (at 32°29' N, 95°17' W) and runs east for a mile to Lake Clear, through the lake for one mile, and then northeast for four miles to its mouth on the Sabine River, four miles north of Winona (at 32°32' N, 95°11' W). It traverses flat to rolling terrain with some local steep slopes, descending into low-lying floodplains at the mouth. The area soil is a sandy clay loam, occasionally covered by gravel or a fine light-colored sand, that supports pines, hardwoods, and grasses near the creek's source and water-tolerant vegetation at its mouth.
