GLADE CREEK (Upshur County). Glade Creek rises a mile south of Enoch in central Upshur County (at 32°42' N, 94°59' W) and runs southeast for thirteen miles to its mouth on the Sabine River, just west of Gladewater in northern Gregg County (at 32°32' N, 94°58' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It is dammed just north of Gladewater to form Lake Gladewater, and much of its lower course is inundated. Glade Creek traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
