PINEY CREEK (Houston County). Piney Creek rises two miles west of Kennard in southeastern Houston County (at 31°21' N, 95°14' W) and runs southeast for forty-eight miles, crossing central Trinity and northern Polk counties before reaching its mouth on the Neches River, in the northeastern corner of Polk County (at 31°04' N, 94°34' W). It traverses flat terrain surfaced by clayey and sandy loam soils that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
