STINKING CREEK (Titus County). Stinking Creek rises five miles northeast of Mount Pleasant in central Titus County (at 33°14' N, 94°56' W) and runs north for 7½ miles to its mouth on White Oak Creek, 2½ miles south of Wilkinson (at 33°19' N, 94°57' W). The gently undulating to rolling area through which the creek flows is surfaced by sandy soils along the upper reaches and loamy soils through the middle and lower reaches. The area is heavily wooded, with pines and various hardwoods predominating.
