FOURMILE CREEK (Jasper County). Fourmile Creek rises 11½ miles west of Harrisburg in northern Jasper County (at 31°01' N, 94°00' W) and runs southeast for 4½ miles to its mouth on Sandy Creek, just over three miles north of Jasper (at 30°58' N, 93°58' W). The stream cuts through undulating to hilly terrain surfaced by deep sandy soil that supports heavy woodlands. Dominant trees in the area include loblolly, shortleaf, and longleaf pine.
