LITTLE CYPRESS CREEK (Wood County). Little Cypress Creek rises a half mile east of Ogburn in eastern Wood County (at 32°52' N, 95°12' W) and runs southeast for sixty miles through eastern Wood, central Upshur, and western Harrison counties to its mouth on Big Cypress Bayou, four miles east of Jefferson on the Marion county line (at 32°45' N, 94°15' W). The creek is intermittent in its upper reaches. In its lower reaches it is known as Little Cypress Bayou. The stream traverses flat to low-rolling terrain that is surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
