The San Jacinto River runs from Lake Houston in Harris County, Texas to Galveston Bay. In the past, it was home to the Karankawa and Akokisa tribes. It is named after Saint Hyacinth.
There are two forks to the San Jacinto river, simply known as the East and West Forks. The west fork of the San Jacinto River feeds Lake Conroe and flows south through Montgomery County to meet with the east fork in northeast Harris County to form Lake Houston. The east fork springs in San Jacinto County, north of the Sam Houston National Forest. Tributaries of both forks spring within just a few miles of Lake Livingston, a reservoir on the Trinity River.
The east fork flows south through Cleveland in Liberty County as it heads to Montgomery County and meets the north end of Lake Houston. Continuing southward, the river meets with Buffalo Bayou and feeds the Houston Ship Channel.
