POST OAK CREEK (Navarro County). Post Oak Creek rises just south of Frost in northwestern Navarro County (at 32°04' N, 96°47' W) and runs southeast for fifteen miles to its mouth on Richland Creek, two miles west of Purdon (at 31°56' N, 96°39' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced with clayey and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses.
