THOUCHING CREEK. Thouching Creek rises four miles northeast of Hillister in south central Tyler County (at 30°42' N, 94°20' W). Intermittent in its upper reaches, it follows a southerly course to its mouth on Theuvenins Creek, two miles north of the Tyler-Hardin county line (at 30°33' N, 94°28' W). Hardwood forest and conifers predominate in the surrounding terrain, which is flat to rolling with local escarpments.
