DENWIDDIE BAYOU. Denwiddie Bayou rises 3½ miles north of Detroit in northwestern Red River County (at 33°43' N, 95°16' W) and runs northeast for 10½ miles to its mouth on Pecan Bayou, seven miles northeast of Bagwell (at 33°46' N, 95°07' W). The soils along the creek, which is intermittent in its upper and middle reaches, are loamy and clayey, and the area is heavily wooded, with pines and various hardwoods predominating.
