HICKORY CREEK (Hunt County). Hickory Creek rises just southeast of Celeste in north central Hunt County (at 33°19' N, 96°12' W) and runs southeast for 6½ miles to its mouth on the Cowleech Fork of the Sabine River, 2½ miles southeast of Kingston (at 33°13' N, 96°09' W). It traverses flat to rolling terrain, surfaced by dark, commonly calcareous clays and clay and sandy loams that support mesquite and water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
