PIN OAK CREEK (Lee County). Pin Oak Creek rises at an elevation of about 420 feet in pastureland near U.S. Highway 77 in southeastern Lee County (at 30°09' N, 96°55' W) and flows south for six miles to its mouth on Rabbs Creek in Fayette County, at an elevation of about 310 feet (at 30°04' N, 96°54' W). Throughout its length it runs through an area with mixed farming and grazing operations on shallow sandy loam topsoils with heavy clay subsoils. The vegetation along about half its course consists of a heavy mixture of oak, cedar, and yaupon.
