The granite ridge connecting Table Rock and Pinnacle Mountain drops away into two slopes. Because gravity pulls water downhill, all precipitation that falls onto the south-facing slope will eventually collect in the Oolenoy River system. Like any expanse of land that drains into a particular body of water, this slope is a "watershed."

Within this watershed, springs feed streams like Mill Creek, Carrick Creek, and Green Creek. The contours of the land determine the direction and speed of these creeks, which supply all forest life with a network of fresh water.
