BONITA CREEK (Nacogdoches County). Bonita Creek, also known as Bayou Bonita, rises just south of Central Heights in north central Nacogdoches County (at 31°43' N, 94°41' W) and flows southeast for nine miles, through central Nacogdoches, to its mouth on La Nana Bayou, just south of downtown (at 31°35' N, 94°39' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. It crosses flat terrain with local shallow depressions, surfaced by clay and sandy loam that supports water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses along the banks.
