WALNUT CREEK (Freestone County). Walnut Creek rises less than a mile from Fairfield in central Freestone County (at 31°44' N, 96°08' W) and runs northwest for seven miles to its mouth on Cottonwood Creek, 1½ miles south of Stewards Mill (at 31°48' N, 96°11' W). It crosses rolling to flat prairies with local shallow depressions and surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support hardwoods, pines, conifers, and grasses. The area is used primarily as dry cropland and forest.
