PIN OAK CREEK (Lee County). Pin Oak Creek rises one mile south of Giddings in southwestern Lee County (at 30°08' N, 96°51' W) and flows southeast for 4½ miles to its mouth on Cummins Creek, in northern Fayette County (at 30°07' N, 96°47' W). Throughout its length it meanders through shallow, highly erodible topsoil of sandy loam and a heavy subsoil of clay. The area is considered marginal for agriculture and is used primarily for grazing and wildlife habitat. Vegetation along the creek consists of a mixture of oaks and cedar with an understory of yaupon.
