GUM CREEK (Harrison County). Gum Creek rises four miles northeast of Hallsville in west central Harrison County (at 32°33' N, 94°32' W) and runs north for 4½ miles to its mouth on Little Cypress Bayou, four miles south of Harleton (at 32°37' N, 94°33' W). The banks of the stream are heavily wooded in places with pine and hardwood trees. Gum Creek traverses nearly level to hilly terrain surfaced by loamy and clayey soils that are used predominantly for agriculture.
