ROGERS CREEK. Rogers Creek, formerly known as Rodgers Creek, rises in southeastern Wood County (at 32°38' N, 95°13' W) in the Hawkins oilfield two miles north of Hawkins and runs southeast for eight miles, curving briefly into Upshur County before reaching its mouth (at 32°34' N, 95°09' W) on the Sabine River at the county line between Wood, Upshur, and Smith counties. The stream traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by sandy and clay loam soils that support hardwoods and conifers.
