WAGONER BRANCH. Wagoner Branch rises just north of the city limits of Decatur in central Wise County (at 33°14' N, 97°35' W) and flows southeast for eight miles, through flat to rolling land surfaced mostly with deep, fine sandy loam that supports a hardwood forest. For most of the county's history the Wagoner Branch area has been used as range and cropland. The creek joins the West Fork of the Trinity River two miles north of Paradise (at 33°11' N, 97°40' W).
