CANEY CREEK (Montgomery County). Caney Creek rises west of Farm Road 1791 in extreme northwestern Montgomery County (at 30°36' N, 95°48' W) and runs southeast for thirteen miles, traveling parallel to the Walker-Montgomery county line and passing through the Sam Houston National Forest before reaching its mouth on Lake Conroe, northeast of Lake Mount Pleasant (at 30°30' N, 95°40' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It crosses flat terrain with local shallow depressions surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
