WRIGHT CREEK. Wright Creek rises two miles northwest of Sorghumville in extreme southwestern Houston County (at 31°05' N, 95°32' W) and flows south for 10½ miles to its mouth on the Trinity River, four miles east of Calhoun in northern Walker County (at 30°55' N, 95°32' W). It crosses flat terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
