Big Pine Creek is formed by the junction of Little Pine and Tanyard creeks 1½ miles south of Kanawha in northwestern Red River County (at 33°51' N, 95°14' W). The stream winds northeast for fourteen miles to its mouth on the Red River, about a mile west of Albion in north central Red River County (at 33°52' N, 95°03' W). The soils along the creek are clayey, and the area is heavily wooded, with various hardwoods predominating.
