It empties into the Neches River twelve miles north of Jasper in northwestern Jasper County (at 31°54′N 94°12′W / 31.9°N 94.2°W / 31.9; -94.2).

Famous quotes containing the word river:
“Ask me no more: thy fate and mine are sealed;
I strove against the stream and all in vain;
Let the great river take me to the main.
No more, dear love, for at a touch I yield;
Ask me no more.”
—Alfred Tennyson (18091892)
