LITTLE CYPRESS CREEK (HARRIS COUNTY)
LITTLE CYPRESS CREEK (Harris County). Little Cypress Creek, a tributary of Cypress Creek, rises in Hockley in north Harris County (at 30°02' N, 95°51' W) and runs southeast for 14½ miles to its mouth on Cypress Creek (at 29°58' N, 95°37' W). The creek travels through an area of north Harris County in which stretches of coastal prairie are interspersed with forested areas of pine and oak, with a number of other native Big Thicket trees found near the streams. The terrain varies from flat to rolling with local escarpments and dissections; the soil is generally composed of shallow to deep sandy and clay loams.
