GOLONDRINA CREEK. Golondrina Creek rises four miles east of Mount Enterprise in southeastern Rusk County (at 31°56' N, 94°37' W) and runs southeast for fourteen miles to its mouth on Attoyac Bayou (at 31°51' N, 94°28' W). It traverses an area of steep slopes and gently rolling prairies, then passes through flat terrain with local escarpments. The area's clay subsoil and sandy loams support grasses and mixed hardwood and pine forests. Golondrina is Spanish for "swallow."
