WOODS CREEK (Fayette County). Woods Creek rises in a tank near Farm Road 1457 a mile southeast of Nassau Cemetery in northeast Fayette County near the juncture of Fayette, Washington, and Austin counties (at 30°02' N, 96°37' W). It runs southwest for four miles to its mouth on Cummins Creek (at 30°00' N, 96°40' W). It crosses gently rolling terrain surfaced by a shallow sandy loam topsoil over very firm clay layers. The area is used primarily as pasture for cattle and horses. A flood-control dam impounds a small, unnamed body of water a mile upstream from the creek's mouth.
