WILLOW WATERHOLE BAYOU. Willow Waterhole Bayou rises southeast of the intersection of Bellfort Avenue and Fondren Road in southwest Harris County (at 29°38' N, 95°31' W) and flows in a northeasterly direction for four miles, through a highly developed area of Houston, to its mouth on Brays Bayou (at 29°41' N, 95°27' W). The natural terrain of the area through which the bayou runs is flat to rolling, with dark calcareous clay soils.
