LITTLE BAYOU LOCO. Little Bayou Loco, also known as Little Loco Bayou and Little Loco Creek, rises three miles west of Trawick in west central Nacogdoches County (at 31°46' N, 94°48' W). It formerly ran south for nine miles to its mouth on Loco Bayou, just south of State Highway 21. Since the construction of Lake Nacogdoches in recent years, the creek's lower reaches have been inundated, and the creek now enters the lake a mile further north (at 31°38' N, 94°48' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
