WILLAWALLA CREEK. Willawalla Creek rises five miles northeast of Forestburg in east central Montague County (at 33°36' N, 97°37' W). Intermittent in its upper reaches, the stream enters Cooke County 3½ miles east of Forestburg and runs southeast for ten miles to its mouth on Clear Creek, 4½ miles east of Forestburg (at 33°32' N, 97°28' W). It crosses generally flat terrain with local escarpments and shallow depressions, surfaced by sandy and clay loams that support hardwood trees, conifers, brush, and grasses. The area has served as crop and range land.
