GLADE CREEK (Wood County). Glade Creek rises 3½ miles southeast of Quitman in central Wood County (at 32°47' N, 95°22' W) and flows through two small lakes, Quitman Club Lake and Lake Lydia, then continues southwest, traveling a total of 6½ miles before reaching its mouth on Lake Fork Creek, a mile north of Farm Road 1254 (at 32°44' N, 95°26' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses gently rolling to flat terrain surfaced by sandy and clay loams that support hardwoods and pines.
