Williams Bayou, also known as Williams Gully, rises three miles east of Humble in northeast Harris County (at 29°59' N, 95°12' W) and runs southwest for 4½ miles to its mouth on Garner's Bayou (at 29°57' N, 95°14' W). The area is characterized by flat to rolling terrain covered by a combination of pine-hardwood forest and mesquite, grasses, and cacti. The soil is moderately well to poorly drained loams with some cracking clayey subsoils.
