COLLEY CREEK. Colley Creek rises three miles north of Linden in central Cass County (at 33°03' N, 94°22' W) and runs southeast for 6½ miles to its mouth on Frazier Creek, five miles northeast of Linden (at 33°02' N, 94°17' W). The surrounding gently undulating to rolling terrain is surfaced by sandy loam that supports heavy woods of pines and hardwoods.
