RUSH CREEK (Navarro County). Rush Creek rises near Phillips in northeastern Navarro County (at 32° 12' N, 96° 18' W) and flows southeast for fifteen miles to its mouth on the Trinity River, three miles northeast of Rural Shade (at 32° 06' N, 96° 07' W). The stream, which is intermittent in its upper reaches, flows through flat to rolling terrain surfaced with clayey and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses.
