HORSEPEN CREEK. Horsepen Creek rises five miles south of Chester in northwestern Tyler County (at 30°50' N, 94°36' W) and runs southeast for sixteen miles to its mouth on Hickory Creek, three miles west of Warren (at 30°36' N, 94°28' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper stages, rises in an area where clay and sandy loams predominate; near its mouth the soils change to fine, sandy loams. The area is noted for its fine timber.
