CLEAR CREEK (Fayette County). Clear Creek rises in a tank on the south slope of Hellers Hill in north central Fayette County (at 30°02' N, 96°47' W) and runs south and then east for fourteen miles to its mouth on Cummins Creek, 3½ miles north of Rek Hill (at 29°59' N, 96°39' W). It flows through Oldenburg and several unnamed flood control impoundments. Variable terrain is surfaced by clay, sand, and gravel that support oaks, cedar, occasional pines, and an understory of yaupon.
