GILADON CREEK. Giladon Creek rises about a mile east of State Highway 64 and four miles southeast of Wills Point in northwestern Van Zandt County (at 32°40' N, 95°58' W) and runs northeast for almost twelve miles to its mouth on Mill Creek, a mile east of State Highway 19 and three miles northwest of Fruitvale (at 32°44' N, 95°49' W). The area is flat with local shallow depressions; its clayey and sandy loams support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
