NORTH PRAIRIE CREEK. North Prairie Creek rises in a pool a mile west of Lorraine Lake and just east of Lindale in northern Smith County (at 32°31' N, 95°28' W) and runs east and then north for a total of fourteen miles before reaching its mouth (at 32°35' N, 95°20' W) on the labyrinthine Old Sabine River Channel, two miles west of Saline Creek. It traverses flat to rolling terrain with some local steep slopes, surfaced by light-colored sandy loams with occasional clays that support grasses near its source, pine and hardwood forests along its course, and water oak, elm, and hackberry at its mouth.
