LITTLE JACKS CREEK. Little Jacks Creek rises near the Washington county line in northeastern Fayette County (at 30°03' N, 96°37' W) and runs southwest for 2½ miles to its mouth on Jacks Creek (at 30°02' N, 96°39' W). It crosses rolling terrain surfaced by shallow, sandy loam over dense layers of clay. The land is rated as fair to good for agriculture and is used primarily as improved pasture for cattle and horses. Vegetation in the uncleared creek bottoms is a mixture of oak and cedar with a yaupon understory and occasional pecan.
