WALNUT CREEK (Upshur County). Walnut Creek rises south of Old Diana in eastern Upshur County (at 32°44' N, 94°45' W) and runs south for five miles to its mouth on Little Cypress Creek, a mile south of James (at 32°40' N, 94°45' W). The creek is intermittent in its upper reaches. It crosses flat to low rolling terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
