Clear shallow water running over white sand and gravel in a beautiful East Texas setting is the best way to describe this quaint stream that runns through Lake Houston State Park. The water quality is good and Texas Parks and Wildlife allows wading in the creek. This area is gaining in popularity and now has a canoe race that starts in the park. The East Fork / West Fork Canoe Challenge moves down Peach Creek to Caney Creek, down to the East Fork of the San Jacinto River, then down to the West Fork of the San Jacinto River and ends at the Forest Cove Marina. An astounding distance of 16 miles!
