ALLEN CREEK (Fayette County). Allen Creek rises in Fayetteville in eastern Fayette County (at 29°54' N, 96°41' W) and flows east intermittently for four miles to its mouth on Pool Branch, one mile southeast of the community of Rek Hill (at 29°55' N, 96°38' W). Throughout its length the stream generally parallels the route of the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railroad. The area soils vary from deep sand and gravel to sandy loam topsoil with firm clay subsoil. The surrounding land is used primarily as pasture. Area vegetation consists primarily of mesquite and grasses. The stream flows through an area of low-rolling hills and prairies.
