WALNUT CREEK (Anderson County). Walnut Creek rises three miles west of the community of Brushy Creek in northern Anderson County (at 31°58' N, 95°40' W). The stream, intermittent in its upper reaches, flows in a southeasterly direction for sixteen miles, through northeastern Anderson County, to its mouth on the Neches River, four miles northeast of Neches (at 31°54' N, 95°26' W). Its banks are heavily wooded in places with pine and hardwood trees, and the area terrain is nearly level to moderately steep and surfaced by sandy and clayey upland soils. The land is mainly farmland.
