Sabine River

 
Length: 575 miles (925 kilometers)

The Sabine River rises in the prairies northeast of Dallas, Texas. It flows southeast across Texas, then south to the Texas–Louisiana line. Near its mouth the river broadens to form Sabine Lake, then goes through Sabine Pass to the Gulf of Mexico. The Neches River flows into the lake. Port Arthur, Texas, is on Sabine Lake, and Orange, Texas, is on the river. The Sabine–Neches Canal divides above Port Arthur, the west branch leading up the Neches River to Beaumont and the east branch flowing to Orange. Part of the Intracoastal Waterway, it permits oceangoing vessels to reach these cities.
