GAYLOR CREEK. Gaylor (Gaylors) Creek rises three miles east of Cleveland in north central Liberty County (at 30°17' N, 94°58' W) and runs east for eleven miles through the East Texas piney woods region to its mouth on Gaylor Lake (at 30°16' N, 94°50' W). It traverses an area surfaced by clayey, loamy, and sandy soils that support black gum, water oak, beech, and elm trees as well as Indiangrass and switchgrass.
