CLEAR CREEK (Upshur County). Clear Creek rises two miles west of Piedmont in south central Upshur County (at 32°41' N, 94°57' W) and runs northeast for eleven miles to its mouth on Little Cypress Creek, a mile southeast of Graceton (at 32°41' N, 94°48' W). The surrounding flat to rolling terrain is surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
