PECAN CREEK (Cooke County). Pecan Creek rises three miles northwest of Gainesville in north central Cooke County (at 33°41' N, 97°10' W) and runs southeast for eight miles to its mouth on the Elm Fork of the Trinity River, three miles south of Gainesville (at 33°35' N, 97°07' W). It traverses variable terrain, surfaced by shallow, stony, clay loams that support juniper, oak, and grasses. Historically the Pecan Creek area has been used as range and crop land.
