CHERRY CREEK (Lamar County). Cherry Creek rises four miles southwest of Paris in southern Lamar County (at 33°35' N, 95°37' W) and runs southeast for eight miles to its mouth on the North Sulphur River, southwest of Gadston and a half mile south of the Delta county line (at 33°28' N, 95°36' W). The local flat to gently rolling terrain is surfaced by dark clays and deep loams that support grasses, oak, and juniper in the creek's upper reaches. At its mouth floodplains are surfaced by clay loams.
