WILDCAT CREEK (Henderson County). Wildcat Creek rises two miles north of Beck's Chapel in southwestern Henderson County (at 32°05' N, 95°55' W) and flows southwest for eleven miles to its mouth on the Trinity River, just south of U.S. Highway 287 in extreme northwestern Anderson County (at 32°00' N, 96°03' W). The creek traverses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by sandy and clay loams that support water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses.
