ROCK CREEK (SMITH COUNTY)
ROCK CREEK (Smith County). Rock Creek rises one mile northwest of Garden Valley in northwestern Smith County (at 32°32' N, 95°34' W). It is intermittent in its headwaters and runs north for seven miles to its mouth on the Sabine River, just west of U.S. Highway 69 in Wood County (at 32°37' N, 95°29' W). The surrounding terrain is flat to rolling with some local steep slopes and is surfaced by a light-colored sandy loam with occasional clay that supports grasses, post oak, elm, and hackberry.
