GRAND SALINE CREEK. Grand Saline Creek rises four miles northeast of Holly Springs in central Van Zandt County (at 32°30' N, 95°45' W) and runs northeast for twenty-four miles to its mouth on the Sabine River, on the Smith county line just north of Silver Lake (at 32°41' N, 95°36' W). Local terrain is flat with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
