WIGGINS CREEK. Wiggins Creek rises in central Smith County in an unidentified pool four miles north of Tyler in the Hitts Lake oilfield (at 32°29' N, 95°17' W) and runs west for six miles to its mouth on Harris Creek, a mile north of Owentown (at 32°28' N, 95°10' W). The surrounding flat to rolling terrain has some local steep slopes and is surfaced by a light-colored sandy loam with occasional clay that supports pine and hardwood forests.
