HART CREEK. Hart (Harts) Creek rises 4½ miles north of Mount Pleasant in central Titus County (at 33°13' N, 94°59' W) and runs southeast for twelve miles to its mouth on Big Cypress Creek, six miles southeast of Mount Pleasant (at 33°04' N, 94°56' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses gently undulating to rolling terrain for most of its course. Near its mouth the terrain changes to a more level bottomland in the floodplains of Big Cypress Creek. The soils are sandy along the creek's upper reaches and loamy along its middle and lower reaches. The area was originally heavily wooded, with pines and various hardwoods predominating.
