CEDAR CREEK (Bowie County). Cedar Creek rises just east of the Red River county line in extreme western Bowie County (at 33°26' N, 94°45' W) and runs southwest for six miles, through the southeastern corner of Red River County, to its mouth on the Sulphur River, near the intersection of the Franklin, Morris, and Red River county lines (at 33°21' N, 94°47' W). The creek crosses flat to gently rolling terrain surfaced by sandy and clay loams that support grasses and mixed hardwoods and pines.
