COCHINO BAYOU. Cochino Bayou, also known as Coching Bayou and as Hog Creek, rises two miles southwest of Tadmor in southeastern Houston County (at 31°24' N, 95°11' W) and runs southeast for sixteen miles to its mouth on the Neches River, five miles north of Vair in northern Trinity County (at 31°22' N, 95°10' W). The surrounding flat terrain is surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
