LITTLE PIN OAK CREEK (Navarro County). Little Pin Oak Creek rises a mile south of Currie in south central Navarro County (at 31°51' N, 96°29' W) and runs northeast for six miles to its mouth on Richland Creek Reservoir (at 31°56' N, 96°23' W). The creek joined Richland Creek a mile farther northeast and two miles southwest of Cheneyboro (at 31°56' N, 96°22' W) before the construction of the reservoir in the 1970s. It traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses.
