Jordan Creek, also known as Hollenbach in Deitsch, is a 34.1-mile-long (54.9 km) tributary of Little Lehigh Creek in Lehigh County, Pennsylvania, in the United States.
Jordan Creek arises from a natural spring on blue mountain. The spring is located just downhill from the Bake Oven Knob shelter on the Appalachian Trail in Lehigh County. The water course then intermittently flows downhill past Mountain Road. Carrying further south through Heidelberg Township, the creek then passes through the Trexler Nature Preserve.
Jordan Creek joins Little Lehigh Creek in the city of Allentown, before soon flowing into the Lehigh River. It drains an area of 75.8 square miles (196 km2).
