Greenville Creek starts in extreme eastern Indiana in Randolph County. It soon flows into Darke County, Ohio and joins with a tributary that also starts in Indiana, Dismal Creek. It flows through Greenville and Gettysburg before entering Miami County. Near its mouth at the Stillwater River at Covington it drops 20 ft (6 m) at Greenville Falls in a glacially-cut gorge that is a state nature preserve. [4]
