CRYSTAL CREEK (MONTGOMERY COUNTY)
CRYSTAL CREEK (Montgomery County). Crystal (Chrystal) Creek rises in two branches in east central Montgomery County (at 30°16' N, 95°22' W). The East Fork rises at Willis in north central Montgomery County (at 30°26' N, 95°29' W) and runs for sixteen miles southwest to meet the West Fork, which rises on the northeastern edge of Conroe (at 30°20' N, 95°26' W) and runs for seven miles east to their confluence. Crystal Creek then flows south for six miles into the West Fork of the San Jacinto River, six miles south of Conroe (at 30°12' N, 95°24' W). The creek crosses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by deep, fine sandy loam that supports conifers into flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
