MILL CREEK (Smith County). Mill Creek rises just east of Lindale in western Smith County (at 32°31' N, 95°24' W) and runs northeast for seven miles to its mouth on the Sabine River, five miles northeast of Lindale (at 32°35' N, 95°21' W). Several small tributaries run south from the main course. The surrounding flat to rolling terrain, with some local steep slopes, is surfaced by brown or fine sandy loam that supports water oak, elm, and hackberry forests and native grasses. The area at the mouth becomes low-lying flood plains, where a clay subsoil is exposed.
