LAKE CREEK (Anderson County). Lake Creek rises 1½ miles northeast of Montalba in northwestern Anderson County (at 31°53' N, 95°43' W) and runs southwest for seventeen miles to its mouth on Cedar Lake, two miles east of the Trinity River (at 31°43' N, 95°50' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses nearly level to moderately steep terrain, surfaced by sandy and clayey upland soils. Its banks are heavily wooded in places with post oak trees. The area is used predominantly for agriculture.
