STEVE CREEK. Steve Creek, an intermittent stream dammed in its upper reaches, rises a mile northwest of Denman Crossroads in southwest Van Zandt County (at 32°24' N, 95°53' W) and flows eastward for six miles to its mouth on Kickapoo Creek, three miles southwest of Martin's Mills (at 32°23' N, 95°49' W). The area is rolling prairie surfaced by clay loams that support mixed hardwood and pine forests, mesquite, and grasses.
