Allen Creek rises just east of State Highway 64 and a mile southeast of Wills Point in northwestern Van Zandt County (at 32° 40'N 95° 58W) and flows southwest for ten miles to its mouth on Cedar Creek, two miles northeast of Cedarvale in Kaufman County (at 32° 36'N 96° 05'W). The terrain is chiefly flat with local shallow depressions. The soil surface of clay and sandy loams supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
