RED BAYOU (Cherokee County). Red Bayou rises a mile northeast of Wells in extreme southern Cherokee County (at 31°30' N, 94° 57' W) and runs southeast for six miles to its mouth on Boden Creek, two miles southwest of Pollok in northern Angelina County (at 31°25' N, 94°54' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It crosses flat to gently rolling terrain surfaced by sandy and clay loam that supports grasses and mixed hardwoods and pines.
