SIKES CREEK

SIKES CREEK. Sikes Creek rises one mile north of Ratcliff in eastern Houston County (at 31°25' N, 95°07' W) and runs northeast for six miles to its mouth on the Neches River two miles east of Plain (at 31°28' N, 95°04' W). The surrounding flat terrain is surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
