BIG SANDY CREEK (Newton County). Big Sandy Creek rises just west of Weeks Settlement in northwestern Newton County (at 31°05' N, 93°51' W) and flows northeast for twenty-two miles to its mouth on Sixmile Creek, in the Sabine National Forest in Sabine County (at 31°15' N, 93°42' W). the stream, intermittent in its upper stages, traverses generally hilly woodlands. Downstream, several abandoned tram railroad lines indicate the former presence of lumbering operations.
