PIN OAK CREEK (Fayette County). Pin Oak Creek rises just east of State Highway 95 three miles northeast of Cistern in southwestern Fayette County (at 29°51' N, 97°11' W) and runs east, through ranches with pastures interspersed with wooded areas, for six miles to its mouth on Buckners Creek (at 29°51' N, 97°07' W). The surrounding rolling terrain is surfaced by very fine sandy loam, erodible and poor to fair for agriculture; the area is used primarily to pasture cattle and produce hay. Vegetation, which is often thick along the stream, consists primarily of a variety of oaks interspersed with cedar and occasional sycamores, pecans, and hackberries.
