BUCK CREEK (Angelina County). Buck Creek rises 4½ miles east of Lufkin in north central Angelina County (at 31°20' N, 94°37' W) and flows south for 24½ miles to its mouth on the Neches River (at 31°05' N, 94°36' W). The surroundings are typical of the East Texas piney woods, characterized by flat to moderately rolling terrain surfaced with red sandy clay and clayey sandy loams that support pine and hardwood forest.
