LITTLE SANDY CREEK (Wood County). Little Sandy Creek rises in southeastern Wood County (at 32°42' N, 95°18' W) three miles southwest of Pine Mills and runs southeast for 2½ miles to West Lakes, then 2½ miles to Lake Hawkins, then southwest for another mile to Brumley Lake. From Brumley Lake it proceeds three-quarters of a mile to its mouth (at 32°34' N, 95°15' W) on the Sabine River, four miles west of State Highway 14. Its major tributaries include Highland Pond, Clear, and George White branches. Red oak, post oak, sweet gum, hickory, and bois d'arc, as well as switch cane and native grasses, can be found along the course of the creek. Little Sandy Creek probably was named for the sandy clay soils of eastern Wood County.
