LITTLE PINE ISLAND BAYOU. Little Pine Island Bayou rises in southeastern Polk County (at 30°32' N, 94°40' W) four miles west of the Segno oilfield and runs southeast for forty-four miles through Hardin County to its mouth (at 30°10' N, 94°17' W) on Pine Island Bayou and the Jefferson county line at Bevil Oaks. The bayou is part of the Big Thicket drainage system and serves as a focal point of the Little Pine Island Corridor and Lance Rosier sections of the thicket. Bears and panthers as well as more common animals have been sighted among the towering cypress trees and dense undergrowth that line the streambed.
