PINE CREEK (Leon County). Pine Creek, a spring-fed perennial stream, rises (at 31°21' N, 95°49' W) in eastern Leon County fourteen miles east of Centerville, and flows southeast for seven miles to its mouth (at 31°17' N, 95°47' W) on Beaver Dam Creek. It traverses gently sloping to nearly level terrain, surfaced by sandy and clayey soils that support intermittent loblolly pine-sweetgum and post oak-black hickory woods along its upper course. Anglo-American settlement in the vicinity began in the mid-1800s, but the area has remained sparsely populated.
