LITTLE SALINE CREEK (Smith County). Little Saline Creek, also known as Saline Creek, rises in central Smith County (at 32°26' N, 95°22' W) just east of Swan and runs northeast four miles to its mouth (at 32°30' N, 95°19' W) on Hitts Creek to form Saline Creek in the Sand Hills oilfield. The local terrain is flat to rolling with some local steep slopes and is surfaced by a light-colored sandy loam that supports pine and hardwood forests.
