LITTLE PINE CREEK [#2] (Red River County). Little Pine Creek rises four miles north of Detroit in northwestern Red River County (at 33°43' N, 95°17' W) and runs a total of sixteen miles, first northwest and then northeast, passing through part of Lamar County and west of Ramsey Lake before reaching its mouth on Big Pine Creek, east of Farm Road 410 in northwestern Red River County (at 33°51' N, 95°14' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. In the 1930s the stretch of Little Pine Creek from just west of Ramsey Lake to Big Pine Creek, along with its tributary Nolan Creek, was known as Lower Pine Creek. The local terrain is flat with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
